Abstract

Business processes have proven to be essential for organisations to be highly flexible and competitive in today’s markets. However, good process management is not enough to survive in a market if the according IT landscape is not aligned to the business processes. Especially industries focused on software products are facing big problems if the according processes are not aligned to the overall software system architecture. Often, a lot of development resources are spent for features which are never addressed by any business goals, leading to unnecessary development costs. In this paper, a framework for a business process driven software product line configuration will be presented, to provide a systematic way to configure software toolchains.
