Variability in Software Systems—A Systematic Literature Review

  title={Variability in Software Systems—A Systematic Literature Review},
  author={Matthias Galster and Danny Weyns and Dan Tofan and Bartosz Michalik and Paris Avgeriou},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering},
Context: Variability (i.e., the ability of software systems or artifacts to be adjusted for different contexts) became a key property of many systems. Objective: We analyze existing research on variability in software systems. We investigate variability handling in major software engineering phases (e.g., requirements engineering, architecting). Method: We performed a systematic literature review. A manual search covered 13 premium software engineering journals and 18 premium conferences… CONTINUE READING
