Successful software product line organizations evolve to respond to a wide variety of customer, sociological, cultural, technological, economic, political, and environmental changes. They do this by ensuring their business strategy continually addresses customers' requirements and ensuring these requirements are realized by features developed through an engineering strategy that is aligned with the business strategy. Without careful management over time, if the business strategy and engineering strategy are misaligned a product line approach becomes far less effective. Drawing on many years’ product line experience at Danfoss and Nokia we will use a business-engineering strategy alignment framework to explore and discuss some key issues for effective product line management.
