A common UI assembly to be used as a control library as well as base forms


You might want to split that out further based on platform (e.g. win forms assembly and webforms assembly). You might also want to separate the controls out - I find that useful as it puts up an additional barrier to stop me accidentally creating circular references between forms and controls. Forms should know about their controls. Controls should know nothing about the form. Separating the controls into their own assembly means that if you find yourself needing to reference the assembly with the forms then you know you've got part of the design wrong.

DC assemblies


Sorry, I don't see a definition for "DC". Data Controller/Connector?

Fair enough - but be careful about scalability. It might scale well, or you might need to alter the design to allow it to scale well.

· Debtors - DC, I, BO, UI

· Stock - etc, etc.


This can work well, but if you have circular dependencies it can start to become difficult to maintain. e.g. What happens if you have an entity that is both a Creditor and Debtor?

The only thing I'm not so sure about is the fact that you have all those pillars with the UI sitting on top of each - Are they just controls? I would imaging that the UI (the forms) would make a roof to fit on top of the pillars.
