First International Workshop on Model-Driven Approaches in Software Product Line Engineering (MAPLE 2009)
Many of the benefits expected from software product lines (SPLs) are based on the assumption that the additional investment in setting up a product line pays off later when products are created. However, to fully exploit this we need to optimize application engineering processes and handle SPL artifacts in a systematic and efficient manner. This workshop explores how model-driven approaches can help to achieve these goals. In particular the workshop revolves around three themes:
1) efficient product derivation – The true return on investment in product line engineering is achievable when the product lines can be used efficiently for product derivation. How can application engineering benefit from model-driven and aspect-oriented approaches?
2) link PLE research and industry practice – We have to overcome the gap between research and industrial practice so that both sides can learn from each other. Hence, we are particularly interested in experience reports that discuss the use of models in real-world PLE projects.
3) SPL models with a meaning – If we want to improve product derivation, we require models that are more than just vehicles for documentation and discussions on the whiteboard: models that are precise and expressive enough to be used for automation and in advanced interactive tools. However, if the existing models are documentary and ambiguous, how do we achieve more precise models?
