A rationale-based approach to software engineering requires rationale management systems that can integrate the many types of rationale with each other and with the processes of creating software engineering artifacts. Accomplishing this integration in turn requires that such systems be actively connected with software engineering tools, external communication sources and persistent stores of reusable rationale. This chapter describes an architectural framework for such integrative rationale management systems.
