The Product Family Methods session dealt with how to achieve product family results by solving the practical problems of organization, approach, and process. Organizing for Software Product Lines (Jan Bosch, U. of Karlskrona/Ronneby) exemplified this by describing several different organizational structures observed in actual case studies of organizations using the product family approach. For each organizational scheme presented, its advantages and disadvantages were described, along with conjectures about the size and type of organization in which that scheme would be most effective.
