Abstract—Various factors work on an artificial system, and the composition rule and grammar of that system have some tendency. To create certain special system, through understanding its composition rule and grammar, it is necessary to analyze what are the factors (Node) to compose total system and how do they compose, but it is difficult to make clear what Nodes are directly. There are several ways to analyze artificial objects, and one of the ways is “Architecture” concept. Basic view point of this concept is to analyze the interfaces between elements those are the components of artificial system, such as product, organization, or process. In this paper, “Architecture” is defined as follows: the fundamental rule about composition (method of structure) and the fundamental technique (method of construction) of an artificial system, from the point of view of how to divide the system into some elements (modules) and how to design their joints (interfaces). It is for the purpose of indicating one approach regarding effective development method through such discussions for developing products of each area whose development speed increases at present. Eventually, we consider indicating the approach related to the flow of developing products that correspond to the characteristics of each product area and design philosophy unique to the designer. 
Index Terms—architecture concept, integration, modularity, technological tendency, hierarchy structure
