Proceedings 1st International Workshop on Agile Product Line Engineering (APLE'06)
Product line scoping is an important activity in re-engineering-based software product line adoption. Both business issues and technical concerns have to be handled adequately. However, involving stakeholders representing these different concerns is not straight-forward. Agile methods strongly emphasize stake-holder involvement and customer collaboration. In this paper we propose a collaborative approach which is intended to complement existing approaches for re-engineering of legacy products in product line engi-neering. It supports success-critical stakeholders work-ing collaboratively to converge on a product map and a definition of reusable infrastructures. Our approach is based on the WinWin requirements negotiation method which facilitates stakeholder collaboration and guidance towards mutually acceptable solutions.
