Hi folks,

How many pages should be there in general not more not less, for the architectural document for SCEA 2 assignment.

The answer is what it would be for a real world assignment - enough detail that your solution is clearly understood.

I'm aware that's a rather indistinct answer, and that's how life goes sometimes. You need to be able to explain the assumptions you made and give a clear picture of what you were thinking and what your intentions with the design were, but anything beyond that is extraneous. That's not to say more than the required amount is harmful, mind you, but just that you need to ensure that someone other than yourself will understand if they read it.

Hope that helps!

I saw messages regarding assumptions doc of different lengths of 2 to 28. It's all upto you how many assumptions you have during the design.
