Domain-Specific Methods for Product Family Development
Wednesday 10:15 - 11:00 (Tools Room)

Current modelling languages are based on the concepts of programming languages, leading to a poor mapping to product family characteristics and difficulties in leveraging the benefits and efficiencies of product family development. Domain-specific modelling languages fitting to the product family provide a viable solution. A modelling language (i.e. a metamodel) is defined based on the family characteristics. The family-specific metamodel sets the variation space for possible models of variants and provides the basis for automated software production. Industrial applications of this approach show remarkable improvements in productivity: up to ten times faster. In this presentation we demonstrate how domain-specific methods work, how it is possible to quickly produce new family members using modelling and summarize results of industrial cases.

Intended Audience: Product Managers, Technology Managers, Software Architects, Project Management, Consultants

Prerequisites: Experience of modeling and general understanding about code generation.
