Towards an Agile Process for Building Software Product Lines
Software product lines are sets of software systems that share common features. Product lines are built as if they were a family of products, identifying those features that change and those that can be reused. There is an evident incompatibility between the requirements of software product lines and agile practices. We report on experiments that used Feature-Driven Development to build software product lines, and describe the minor extensions that were useful for developing software product lines.
