What are the various economic motivations for a software product line?

0

Many organizations that have started software product lines in recent years have done so out of economic necessity. They have found that they simply could not continue to do business as they had in the past and still be competitive. Chief among the economic benefits are reduced time to market, greater market agility, opportunities for mass customization, and lower unit costs. These factors are driven by greater productivity from scarce or costly worker resources. Many organizations are finding that they simply cannot find enough qualified people to expand their business without embracing product line practices or afford to hire them even if they were available. In the realm of acquisition, the government may commission a product line to eliminate wasteful duplication among programs or to enable it to assemble more cost-effective systems by more easily obtaining products from a range of vendors. See the “Building a Business Case” practice area for more information.
