    Abstract

    A steel thread is a set of logically grouped scenarios that identifies the execution path through the system to meet business objectives and to demonstrate executable architecture. Steel threads are often used in the context of defining a software system architecture. Although there have been references to steel threads in software engineering literature, it is hard to find literature of steel threads in books or among the research community. This paper presents the definition of steel threads and contexts under which they are applicable in software development life cycle. The applicability of steel threads is also presented through a case study of a software system.
