Pádraig O'Leary's PhD Student role at Lero - The Irish Software Engineering Research Centre (2006 - 2009)

The derivation of individual products from a software product line is still seen as a time-consuming and expensive activity in many organisations. Despite recognition that an effective derivation process could alleviate many of the difficulties associated with product derivation, little work has been dedicated to this area. Existing approaches have very different scope and emphasize different aspects of the derivation process. Furthermore, they are frequently too specialised to a specific development technique to serve as a general solution. This leaves organisations with no centralized starting point for defining an approach to product derivation.

Accordingly there is a strong need for a structured approach to product derivation which defines activities, tasks, roles, inputs and outputs of each step in a structured and systematic way.

Through a series of research phases using sources in industry and academia, this research has developed a process reference model for product derivation (Pro-PD). Pro-PD focuses on the essential tasks, roles and work artefacts used to derive products from a software product line. Pro-PD is an adaptable approach and can be tailored to suit different requirements.
