Using patterns to model variability in product families

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A product family can generate significant savings in cost and time by permitting software component reuse. The authors have developed a simple method of product family engineering using patterns to model variability and tested it on the European Space Operations Centre new mission planning software system with positive results.
