I. Software Product Line Engineering Are you interested in producing software products or software-intensive systems at lower costs, in shorter time, and with higher quality? If so, you are holding the right book in your hands. Software product line engineering has proven to be the methodology for Higher quality, lower developing a diversity of software products and software-intensive systems cost, and shorter at lower costs, in shorter time, and with higher quality. Numerous reports development times document the significant achievements and experience gained by introducing software product lines in the software industry. Chapter 21 of this book summarises several cases. Concerning the terminology, there is an almost synonymous use of the terms Software product line software product family and software product line .

This is, among other things, reflected in the names of the two former conference series (the so- ware product line conference series, started in 2000 in the USA, and the product family engineering (PFE) workshop series, started in 1996 in Europe) which were merged in 2004 to form the leading software product line conference (SPLC) series. In this book, we use the term software product line."
