Sammanfattning

When developing software platforms for product lines, decisions
on which features to implement are affected by factors
such as changing markets and evolving technologies. Effective
scoping thus requires continuous assessment of how changes
in the domain impact scoping decisions. Decisions may have
to be changed as circumstances change, resulting in a dynamic
evolution of the scope of software asset investments. This paper
presents an industrial case study in a large-scale setting
where a technique called Feature Survival Charts for visualization
of scoping change dynamics has been implemented and
evaluated in three projects. The evaluation demonstrated that
the charts can effectively focus investigations of reasons behind
scoping decisions, valuable for future process improvements.
A set of scoping measurements is also proposed, analyzed theoretically
and evaluated empirically with data from the cases.
The conclusions by the case company practitioners are positive,
and the solution is integrated with their current requirements
engineering measurement process.
