The Economic Impact of Product Line Adoption and Evolution
July/August 2002 (vol. 19 no. 4)

An organization faces many challenging decisions when transitioning to product line development: What's the best way to adopt a product line approach? How can we avoid disrupting regular product development? Once adopted, how should we evolve the product line? Which techniques should we use as guides? To optimize a product line's economic benefits, it is important to consider the adoption context and to use product line scoping techniques when answering these questions.
