Using Patterns to Model Variability in Product Families

  title={Using Patterns to Model Variability in Product Families},
  author={Barry Keepence and Mike Mannion},
  journal={IEEE Software},
Feature Product family engineering permits soft ware component reuse, which saves both time and money. To succeed, the process must suppor t variabilit y among the family's systems. The authors developed a simple method that uses patterns to model variabilit y and applied it to development of spacecraft mission-planning systems. or each of its spacecraft, the European Space Operations Centre (ESOC) develops a new mission-planning software system. MPSs are increasing in complexity, even as… CONTINUE READING
