In the United States, product line activities can be divided between technology consumers and technology providers. Consumers are the practitioners, the people in companies who are turning out product families using common architectures, components, and other resources. Technology providers in the area of product lines produce either methods or tools, or sometimes both.

Technology providers representative of those providing methodological contributions include Lucent Technologies and the Software Engineering Institute.
