This booklet includes the court cases of the fifth overseas Workshop on Product family members Engineering, PFE-5. This workshop used to be held in Siena, Italy, November 4–6, 2003. This workshop was once the 5th within the sequence, with an identical topic, software program product relatives engineering. those workshops were held in the beginning irregularly approximately each 18 months seeing that 1996. considering the fact that 1999 the workshop has been held each moment 12 months within the fall. The court cases of the second one, 3rd and fourth workshops have been released as Springer LNCS volumes 1429, 1951 and 2290.

If the market is 24 Stan Bühne et al. ” How high is the motivation to use a product line approach? The readiness to adopt a product line approach (from the organization’s point of view) basically depends on two factors: (1) is the organization forced to use a product line approach to remain competitive, and (2) can some other organizational strategy be leveraged to maintain or even extend its market position? If the organization firmly believes that a product line approach is essential to achieving its goals, both its motivation for adopting the approach and its commitment to stay the product line course would likely be high.

Choosing core asset development as a specific adoption objective, we show how understanding and characterizing the adoption context can help you choose an appropriate strategy. We summarize our results and then conclude with projections about how this reasoning can be further applied for greater advantage. 2 Product Line Adoption Product line adoption involves moving from some form of developing softwareintensive systems via a single-system mentality to developing a family of softwareintensive systems that form a product line.

In general an up-front implementation of a variability seems to be the least costly approach if the probability that the variability is actually required by a product is not too low. The development of a product line architecture that modularizes the variabilities seems to play a key role in lowering overall development costs. Of course, there are usually other aspects, like the availability of resources, that will have an impact on the decision whether to use a proactive, a reactive, or an intermediate approach.
