Product line engineering is a new and ambitious approach, aiming at developing a whole set of products in an integrated manner. Product line development approaches usually use architectural approaches, component technologies and OO-frameworks as a basis for the high level of reuse among familiar members. While these technologies have been studied quite extensively, technology by itself is insufficient for successfully changing an organization into a product line development organization. In this workshop we will focus on the early stages of product line engineering like economic planning, management, and modeling of product line development and the organizational embedding of the shift.

It is our aim to establish a forum for the successful exchange among product line practitioners and researchers. A key goal of the workshop will be to establish a preliminary research agenda and compile lessons learned from the field.
