Abstract

A production plan is a description of how core assets are to be used to develop a product in a product line. A product line organization creates such a plan to ensure that the correct core assets are used appropriately to build a specific product in a specific way. The production plans and techniques used to create products vary widely from organization to organization and from one product line to another. Because of this variance, the developers of production plans need some guidance about the plans' form and content.  

This technical report provides guidance for creating, using, and evaluating a production plan. In addition, this report presents a classification scheme that describes the characteristics of a product line organization that influence the form and content of the production plan.
