Variability Issues in Software Product Lines

  title={Variability Issues in Software Product Lines},
  author={Jan Bosch and Gert Florijn and Danny Greefhorst and Juha Kuusela and J. Henk Obbink and Klaus Pohl},
Software product lines (or system families) have achieved considerable adoption by the software industry. A software product line captures the commonalities between a set of products while providing for the differences. Differences are managed by delaying design decisions, thereby introducing variation points. The whole of variation points is typically referred to as the variability of the software product line. Variability management is, however, not a trivial activity and several issues exist… CONTINUE READING
