These are the proceedings of the third workshop on the theme of Software Architecture for Product families. The series is originated by the drive of many companies to minimize both the costs of developing and the time to market of new members of a software rich product family (or product line). Today companies offering software-intensive systems have to face several trends: modularity, component technology, configurability, standardization, decreasing time to market, fast change of requirements, globalization, and more varying customer groups. These trends may cause serious problems if we don’t meet them with adequate means.
