Software Engineering for Variability Intensive Systems: Foundations and Applications

Front Cover
Ivan Mistrik, Matthias Galster, Bruce R. Maxim
CRC Press, Jan 15, 2019 - Computers - 366 pages

This book addresses the challenges in the software engineering of variability-intensive systems. Variability-intensive systems can support different usage scenarios by accommodating different and unforeseen features and qualities. The book features academic and industrial contributions that discuss the challenges in developing, maintaining and evolving systems, cloud and mobile services for variability-intensive software systems and the scalability requirements they imply. The book explores software engineering approaches that can efficiently deal with variability-intensive systems as well as applications and use cases benefiting from variability-intensive systems.
