in short...

AIM42, the architecture-improvement-method, is a systematic yet pragmatic approach to improve productive systems.

AIM42 relies on a small number of domain concepts and works in three phases (analysis, evaluation, improvement) supported by crosscutting activities.

For each phase, AIM42 proposes a number of proven and established practices and patterns. The method addresses both business and technical stakeholders of software systems. aim is developed by an active community in open-source style, backed by extensive industrial experience and scientific research. It has proven to work under time- and budget constraints in various industries.
