Report on the Second International Workshop on Development and Evolution of Software Architectures for Product Families

  • Abstract

    In February 1998, the European Architectural Reasoning for Embedded Software (ARES) project sponsored the Second International Workshop on Development and Evolution of Software Architectures for Product Families. The workshop brought together practitioners and academics from Europe and the United States who are working in the area of software product families; that is, the production of related software systems from a common set of core assets. Chief among those assets is a shared software and/or system architecture. This workshop explored problems of architecture creation, description, evaluation, recovery, and architecture-based process in the context of building a product family. This report summarizes the discussions and outcomes of the workshop.
