This paper presents path-based and pattern-based approaches to formulate and evaluate the change options in change management. The path-based approach uses the dependency information available in the matrix models to trace the propagation paths for different change options. This path-tracing effort can be utilized to evaluate the quality of different change options. Alternatively, the pattern-based approach intends to identify the matrix-based structures of a system to estimate the scope of change propagation for different change options. We will present two cases in the following to illustrate the path-based and pattern-based approaches respectively for change management.
