Abstract

A software product line organization exists to produce products. Much of the research on creating products via product lines has focused on developing core assets such as requirements, architectures, and components. This technical note presents the results of a study that focused on how product line organizations create products (e.g., their production strategy and how core assets are used in the production process). These results include compiled responses to the questionnaire used in the study and follow-up interviews.
