The level of software development and maintenance investment in embedded products has increased considerably over the last decade. As software product families are providing a proven approach to managing the cost and quality of software artefacts, Nokia has exploited this approach to software development for many years. This paper presents some lessons learned and the key challenges for the successful use and evolution of software artefacts.
