Configuration Challenges & Issues: A Configuration Process Model to Reduce the Complexity of Software Product Line.Posted: January 12, 2013
It is my first research paper published in ICCOST 2010 organized by Al-Khawarizmi Institute of Computer Science, University of Engineering and Technology, Lahore. An Excerpt from the paper is here:-
Configuration of software product line is often a more laborious process than anticipated before. One major difficulty with software product line engineering is unavailability of standardize configuration process model that reduces the adverse affects of configuration related issues and problems such as requirements conflicts of same/multiple stages, complexity of conflicts resolution, adhoc testing and low integration with traditional phases of software engineering process models. We discuss some core product line configuration issues and present a standardize configuration process model “CPM” that is built on the strong base of traditional software engineering process models with the additional power of modern product line configuration to reduce the configuration issues and problems. Some real world scenarios are used to illustrate the proposed model.
