This elaboration describes the adaptation of the first three Function-Point steps as a partial approach to estimate the effort in process oriented Software Product Families. The examination is based on general Product-Family requirements to a proceeding of cost estimation with a view to generative programming .
Embedded software systems have become the driving force in many areas of technology like the automotive industry. Control functions of cars, driver assistance as well as systems for information and entertainment are accomplished by software driven control units. Due to the high complexity and development effort of embedded systems, these resources have to… (More)
Software systems with inherent real time characteristics have become the driving force in many areas of technology like the automotive sector. Control functions of cars, driver assistance as well as systems for information and entertainment are accomplished by software driven control units. Due to the high complexity and development effort of real time… (More)
Due to the fact that the complexity and development effort of software systems is constantly increasing, software components have to be reused. Software system families are a promising solution to gain a cost reduction by reusing common software assets in different variants of similar products. To support the economic management of this development approach… (More)
PESOA is a cooperative project supported by the federal ministry of education and research (BMBF). Its aim is the design and prototypical implementation of a process family engineering platform and its application in the areas of e-business and telematics. Automotiv erläutert.
New paradigms in software engineering require new metrics to measure the size and estimate the effort for development or modification activities. One of these new software engineering methods is the approach of Process Families, which extends a Software Product Line engineering by a distinctive consideration of process flows. There are only a few… (More)
