PLiC - Decomposition and Composition of Software Product Lines

Project manager:Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Daniel Lohmann, Dipl.-Ing. Christa Schwanninger (Siemens CT)
Project participants:Dr.-Ing. Christoph Elsner
Sponsored by:
Siemens Corporate Technology, Software & Engineering
Keywords:Software Product Lines; Aspect-Oriented Software Development; Model-Driven Software Development;
Duration:1.3.2008 - 26.4.2012
Topics and Goals:Software Product Line Development has achieved multiple benefits within the last decades. The approach facilitates systematic reuse of various assets throughout the software development lifecycle. Up to know, success stories mainly report on product lines with a clear and rather narrow scope and easy modularizable, generic program artefacts. To benefit from synergies within large companies, however, also settings with several product lines and more complex domain specific functionalities have to be addressed.

In the context of our research, a systematic approach for the decomposition and composition of software product lines will be developed. Thereby, heterogenous representations of the problem space as well as the implementation of variability in the solution space will be addressed. Model-driven and aspect-orented technologies will explicitly be considered and will constitute a crucial part of the approach.
