Many approaches to software product line engineering have been founded on the development of a single product line platform. However as customer requirements change and new products are added to the product line, software producers recognize that the platform cannot be "stretched" indefinitely and a significant problem is striking a balance between development efficiency by increasing platform commonality and customer dissatisfaction from products with additional undesirable features and properties.
