Improving Awareness during Product Derivation in Multi-User Multi Product Line Environments
Sprache des Titels:
Existing product derivation approaches focus on
support for single users resolving variability based on a single
variability model. However, in practice multiple users perform
product derivation of large-scale systems with system-ofsystems
architectures in a distributed and asynchronous manner.
It is infeasible to describe the variability of such multi
product lines with one integrated model. Rather, several models
are needed. Existing research mainly focuses on supporting
modeling in multi product lines. The aim of our ongoing research
is however to improve awareness for multiple users
involved in product derivation in such environments, i.e., to
make users configuring one subsystem aware of the relevant
configuration decisions made for other subsystems. In this
paper we describe an industrial scenario of a multi product
line and derive requirements for awareness support. We
present a preliminary approach based on the "publish/
subscribe" pattern and a tool prototype that aims at improving
awareness in product derivation by sharing decisions
across different derivation projects.
