Analyst Video: Perspectives with Lifecycle Insights — Product Line Engineering (PLE)


Creating, maintaining and evolving a product line today is no easy task. Complex products are getting exponentially more complex. Personalization and configuration of cars, planes, trains, machinery, and a spectrum of other products took that complexity to one level some time ago. In the past decade, software and electronics ‘one upped’ that level of complexity in the product development and delivery process.

In this web show from Lifecycle Insights, analyst Chad Jackson examines these complexity challenges in greater depth. He provides his perspective on Product Line Engineering and a new Feature-based PLE approach for managing complexity across product platforms, families and variants – as well as across the lifecycle. Jackson explores potential solutions with a look at the pros and cons.

Reflections: INCOSE International Workshop 2023

The steady march of Feature-based Product Line Engineering (PLE) from the narrow field of early adopters into the broad mainstream of systems engineering practitioners was on full display at the INCOSE International Workshop (IW2023) in Torrance, California in...

Product Line Processes in an Engineering Tool Ecosystem

In a product-centric environment, it’s common for the same engineering work to be repeated over and over - once for each product in the portfolio to which the work applies. Each time a new requirement is added, a software defect is corrected, or a test case is...
