The Problem: Complexity of software product line portfolio development inhibits business-critical goals

Customer demands require most companies to offer a product line – a portfolio of closely related products with variations in features and functions – rather than just a single product. For development organizations that create standalone or embedded software for a product line portfolio, the ensuing complexity poses significant strategic and tactical challenges.

These development organizations must create, evolve and maintain intertwined software combinations and feature variations, dispersed across a multitude of products and on different production schedules. Managing this multiplicity and interdependency – across the entire software portfolio development lifecycle – is an exponentially complex and costly development problem.

Most importantly, these tactical development challenges are large enough to inhibit a company's ability to hit strategic market windows, provide competitive pricing, maximize product quality, and expand the scale and scope of their portfolio.
