Product line engineering has become an approach to improve the ROI of a whole set of products. Because the approach emphasizes economic optimizations, the need to apply ROI calculations is particularly important. This article describes a model for a product line's ROI, illustrated in a prototypical industrial situation.
Index Terms:
software product lines, cost model, return on investment
