It Takes a Village: Why PLE Technology Solutions Require Ecosystems of PLE Technology Providers

William J. Bolander, Paul C. Clements, Charles Krueger
2016 INCOSE International Symposium  
In product lines with many products and demanding production tempos, manual product derivation is simply not feasible, which leaves us with the option of automated product derivation.  ...  Instead, an ecosystem of tooling is required.  ...  Finally, it must have a user interface that scales for work across organizations with thousands of engineers whose experience working with engineering tools (and many different tools among them) will likely  ...
