Organizations Need Software Product Lines
Now More Than Ever

Effectively using software product lines improves time to market, cost, productivity, and quality. They also enable rapid market entry and flexible response. And, using software product lines simplifies software maintenance and enhancement.

Product line approaches apply practices, processes, technology, and tools aimed at strategic, planned reuse reuse of technical and business artifacts throughout the life cycle. The success of product line approaches depends on overall organizational goals in alignment with the implementation of appropriate product line practices and technologies. This strong interrelationship between organizational concerns and engineering practices makes working and researching the field of software product lines as interesting as it is challenging.

If your organization develops software, you need to explore the benefits software product lines deliver. If you already work with software product lines, you need to ensure that every potential advantage is reached and risk mitigated.
