Evaluating Feature Change Impact on Multi-product Line Configurations Using Partial Information [chapter]

Nicolas Dintzner, Uirá Kulesza, Arie van Deursen, Martin Pinzger
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we present an approach for computing the impact of a feature change on the existing configurations of a multi-product line, using partial information regarding constraints between feature  ...  In the case of product lines, and moreover multi-product lines, a change may affect only certain variants or certain combinations of features, making the evaluation of change effects more difficult.  ...  Line Configurations define cross-FM constraints since we work with partial information.  ...

Decision-making coordination in collaborative product configuration

Marcílio Mendonça, Thiago Tonelli Bartolomei, Donald Cowan
2008 Proceedings of the 2008 ACM symposium on Applied computing - SAC '08  
In Software Product Lines (SPLs), product configuration is a decision-making process in which a group of stakeholders choose features for a product.  ...  The contributions of the paper include the CPC approach and the illustration of its application in a real-world product line.  ...  In practice, feature models are valuable tools to support product configuration. Figure 1 shows a partial feature model of a web portal product line.  ...

Model-Based Automated and Guided Configuration of Embedded Software Systems [chapter]

Razieh Behjati, Shiva Nejati, Tao Yue, Arnaud Gotlieb, Lionel Briand
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We evaluated our approach by applying it to a real subsea oil production system. Specifically, we rebuilt a number of existing verified product configurations of our industry partner.  ...  Our experience shows that our approach successfully enforces consistency of configurations, can automatically infer up to 50% of the configuration decisions, and reduces the complexity of making configuration  ...  During the configuration step, engineers create full or partial product specifications by resolving variabilities in a product-line model.  ...

2013 Proceedings of the 17th International Software Product Line Conference co-located workshops on - SPLC '13 Workshops  
However, an analysis of 100+ existing configurators highlights that not all provide visual representations of configured products.  ...  Numerous companies develop interactive environments to assist users in customising sales products through the selection of configuration options.  ...  We thank Gilles Perrouin for his helpful comments on an earlier draft of this paper.  ...

Pure delta-oriented programming

Ina Schaefer, Ferruccio Damiani
2010 Proceedings of the 2nd International Workshop on Feature-Oriented Software Development - FOSD '10  
Furthermore, we show that Pure DOP is a true generalization of FOP and supports proactive, reactive and extractive product line engineering.  ...  Delta-oriented programming (DOP) is a modular approach for implementing software product lines. Delta modules generalize feature modules by allowing removal of functionality.  ...  Mapping LFJ into LP∆J A product line in FOP can be represented as a product line in Pure DOP. The set of features and the set of valid feature configurations in both product lines is the same.  ...

Combining configuration and recommendation to define an interactive product line configuration approach [article]

Camille Salinesi
2012 arXiv   pre-print
This paper proposes an approach that combines two complementary forms of guidance: configuration and recommendation, to help customers define their own products out of a product line specification.  ...  While solution exists, they are not adapted for highly complex configurable systems such as product lines.  ...  Product line models are commonly used to define the valid combinations of reusable artifacts in a product line. Not all artifacts are compatible.  ...
