Tutorial: New Methods Behind the New Generation of Software Product Line Success Stories, Charles W. Krueger, BigLever Software (Presenter), Monday, September 26, 9:00-12:30. A new generation of software product line successes are emerging, offering the expected 10x improvements, but with 100x less time and effort.

Invited Experiences, Case Study: Incremental Return on Incremental Investment: Engenio's Transition to Software Product Line Practice, William A. Hetrick (Engenio), Charles W. Krueger (BigLever Software), Joseph G. Moore (Engenio), Wednesday, September 28, 11:00-12:30. Using the BigLever solution, Engenio made an incremental, non-disruptive transition to software product line practice -- avoiding the typical upfront burden of re-engineering, redesigning and re-structuring. As a result, Engenio has experienced a 300% increase in development capacity.

Tools Track: Scalable Software Product Line Development with BigLever Software Gears, Charles W. Krueger, BigLever Software (Presenter), Tuesday, September 27, 4:30-5:30.

Panels: Charles W. Krueger, BigLever Software, Panels Chair

  • Change is Good. You Go First. Charles W. Krueger (Moderator), Wednesday, September 28, 9:00-10:30. While there is ample evidence that, for many development organizations, a change to software product line practice would be good, there is a reluctance by these organizations to go first. This panel will explore how to ease SPL adoption.
  • A Competition of Software Product Line Economic Models. Paul Clements (Moderator), Wednesday, September 28, 11:00-12:30. Proponents of different SPL economic models will be given a real-world scenario and asked to predict alternate outcomes.
