In ubiquitous systems of the future, a requirement for appropriate methods for the selection, analysis and evaluation of applications is evident. Traditional methods of analysis rely heavily on the inherent predictability of the system, something which is totally lacking in ubiquitous systems. This paper discusses one possible approach to flexible analysis and evaluation, the Scenario Based Approach, describing its use in the IST FP6 project, Daidalos. The Scenario Based approach addresses the adaptive nature of ubiquitous systems by its own intrinsic flexibility. This paper explains the approach and argues that it is appropriate that a method of analysis should exhibit similar characteristics to the object of that analysis.
