Researchers who create software production environments face considerable problems. Software production environments are large systems that are costly to develop. Furthermore, software production environments which support particular software engineering methods may not be applicable to a large number of software production projects. These conditions have formed a trend towards research i n to ways which will lessen the cost of developing software production environments. In particular, the
more » ... particular, the trend has been towards the construction of meta-environments from which specic software production environments can be created. In this paper, we attempt to categorize more than 60 meta-environment eorts. For each of the categories, we review research eorts which illustrate dierent approaches within that category. W e conclude by presenting an emerging common thread of requirements which links this eld together.
