Methodology for Configuration in Industrial Product Lines

The ConIPF methodology provides a new way for knowledge-based product derivation in the context of software product families. It addresses software-engineers that deal with the complexity of huge amounts of highly variable and interdependent software and hardware components through the methods of knowledge-based configuration.

The ConIPF methodology is presented in two parts. Part I presents the activities of the engineer that develops individual products (application engineer) while reusing those components. ConIPF supports the application engineer with automated derivation performed by the underlying tool chain. Part II presents the activities of the engineer(domain engineer) that designs and implements the infrastructure used by the application engineer. ConIPF builds a configuration model reflecting the asset store and keeps it synchronised with the assets.

To our knowledge the ConIPF methodology represents the most comprehensive integration of software product-line engineering and knowledge-based configuration technologies available to date. Furthermore, the ConIPF methodology is highly relevant for product derivation in the future. It addresses a rich set of different scenarios and roles and structures the product derivation process in applicable parts. Application engineering is therefore accelerated by additionally deriving correct and complete products.
The ConIPF methodology will be published as a book.
