Managing requirements inter-dependency for software product line derivation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Software Product Line Engineering (SPLE) can reduce software development costs, reduce time to market and improve product quality. A software product line is a set of software products sharing a set of common features but containing variation points. Successful SPLE requires making selection decisions at variation points effectively and efficiently. A significant challenge is how to identify, represent and
manage the inter-dependency of selection decisions for requirements.
