Abstract

This case study describes a U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) weapon system development effort and compares the current way of developing software systems to the product line approach. The report describes a product line business case acquisition context, alternative development paths, and a comparison of their merits. While the report "sanitizes" the actual organization and product line, it typifies the process of building a product line business case.
