Software Product Lines
A Software Product Line is a set of software systems that together address a particular market segment or fulfill a particular mission. Today, Software Product Lines are successfully applied in a range of industries, including telephony, medical imaging, financial services, car electronics, and utility control  . Customization and integration are keywords in Software Product Lines: a specific system in the family is constructed by selecting its properties (often technically called “features”), and, following such selection, by customizing and integrating the needed components and deploying them on the required platform.
