Title: An Organizational Approach for Industrialized Systems Integration
Author(s): Matthias Minich, Bettina Harriehausen-Mühlbauer, Christoph Wentzel
Reference: pp399-407
Keywords: Software Industrialization; Software Product Lines; Systems Integration; Organization;
Abstract: Software development in systems integration projects is still reliant on
craftsmanship of highly skilled workers. To make such projects more profitable, an
industrialized production, characterized by high efficiency and quality, seems
inevitable. While first milestones of software industrialization have recently been
achieved, it is questionable if these can be applied to the field of systems
integration as well. One of the most important concepts herein is specialization,
represented by Software Product Lines. The present work analyses this concept
against the particularities of systems integration and subsequently develops an
alternative approach suitable for its implementation. The outcome is a
three-layered organizational model that adapts and distributes the processes of
Software Product Line Engineering and Product Development in accordance with
the requirements of systems integration.
