Moving targets – Change Management for Software Product Lines

Posted in Article by danilo on October 21, 2009

This article is dedicated to change management in software product line development. This is a challenging topic and in many cases more critical for the success of a product line than configuration of products. A software product line is similar to an living organism. It keeps changing continuously. Many who have heard a little about software product line development believe it to be far more complicated than the normal software development they are used to. Surprisingly software product line development is very similar to developing in a conventional way in many aspects.  The main differences are caused  by the number of products you have to care for simultaneously, which, no doubt about this, adds complexity and challenges.
