A computer software/hardware architect is deeply involved in the development and design of new software or hardware. They consider and analyze what the client or company wants and determine variables such as project cost, stability, and usability. Additionally, they generate reports on project progress, analysis, and testing to present to the client. Architects may also be involved in the documentation of design specifications and installation instructions for a project.
