Abstract: Basic design principles, feature modularization, and SPL extensibility of Product Line Architecture (PLA) design have been optimized by multi-objective genetic algorithms. Until now, memetic algorithms have not been used for PLA design optimization. Considering that memetic algorithms (MA) have achieved better quality solutions than the solutions obtained by genetic algorithms (GA) and that previous study involving the application of design patterns to PLA design optimization returned promising results, bringing the motivation in investigating the use of MA and the Design Pattern Search Operator as local search to the referred context. This work presents an exploratory study aimed to characterize the application of using MA in PLA design optimization. When compared with a GA approach, the results show thatMAare promising, since the obtained solutions are slightly better than solutions found by the GA. A pattern application rate was identified in about 30 % of the solutions ob tained by MA. However, the qualitative analysis showed that the existing global search operators need to be refactored for the joint use with the MA approach. (More)
