Abstract

Nowadays, domains like Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) and Internet of Things (IoT) are highly affected by short product cycles and high pricing pressure. Business Process oriented organizations are known to perform better in such flexible environments. However, especially industries which are focused on delivering low cost systems are facing big challenges if the according business processes are not aligned with the capabilities of the product. Consequently, development effort is spent for features which are never addressed by any business goal. With this work, we propose to use a combined variability management in order to create an integrated view on the product variability from an organizational point as well as from a technical view. Using this approach helps in order to identify business drivers as well as to establish a mature product line development.
