Towards a Taxonomy for Software Product Lines [chapter]

Charles W. Krueger
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Drawing from the growing number of software product line experiences and case studies, this report describes a taxonomy for characterizing different software product line approaches.  ...  As such, a taxonomy for software product lines should illuminate how well an approach capitalizes on commonality and manages variation.  ...  Part of the problem is that case studies and descriptions of product line approaches often take a narrow view of a specific solution without the perspective of a point solution in a broader solution space  ...
