Questions:
1- What could be the best way to architect such an application?
Don't know particularly but whatever method you use do it thoughly
Consider your hardware being on a broadcast bus

2- How can we bring modularity?
First define what you mean by a module, h/w and s/w engineers have different ideas of what a module is I asked this on one project and the best answer I got was 'lego-like' - because it was on a project poster.
Once this was defined things started happening.

3- How can we bring extensiblity?
Again define it: work through a use case as to how you would extend the system. does a maintenance technician
take a new module and just plug it in? does it then need new software installed to accept new hardware or will the hardware deliver it or say where to get it etc

4- How does the interaction between different objects take place in a loosely coupled manner?
One possibility: Set up a message passing mechanism between objects and use a setup phase:
i.e. Tell Module A to do Task1 when it gets Message 1 and then send out Message 2 (but not till it's told to)
Tell Module B to do Task2 when it gets message 2 and then send out Message 3

and an execution phase:
Send Message 1 to Module A and wait for Message 2 from Module 2 to show completion.


5- I'll be using Microsft Ribbon. How can we have interaction between different buttons in the Ribbon and modules or screens?

Don't know offhand

6- Any nice article/case study/link to understand the architecure.
Look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CAN_Kingdom[^] described in more detail http://www.kvaser.com/images/Papers/ck301p.pdf[^]. The principles here allowed me to take a non-functioning 'modular' system and make it modular, extendable and above all work.
