Title: Non-Functional Properties in Software Product Lines
Subject: Computer Science
Level: Advanced
Description: Software reuse is an important aspect for software organizations interested in customized products at reasonable costs. Software Product Line Engineering (SPLE) emerges in order to achieve such challenges. The SPLE paradigm is divided in two processes: domain engineering and application engineering. Product derivation is the practice to create distinct products during application engineering. In this scenario, non-functional properties (NFPs) arise to provide product derivation regarding not only functional features, but also quality attributes. The explicit definition of NFPs during software configuration has been considered a challenging task, since NFPs in large systems result from the interaction of many features, making them very hard to be configured. Some approaches and tools have been created to meet this goal, but they still present initial solutions, addressing few NFPs. In this way, this work intends to understand the derivation process related to NFPs and develop a tool for product derivation supporting different non-functional properties.
