Abstract : This paper describes an initial use and evaluation of the Software Productivity consortium's Synthesis methodology by the Command and Control Systems Division (CCSD) of Rockwell International. Synthesis supports instituting a product line of similar software intensive systems, forming a domain of mechanically derivable systems. The potential for a product line exists whenever there is a perceived market for a series of similar products or product versions. Synthesis defines an approach, based on domain-specific reuse, by which an organization can standardize its perceptions of customers needs and effective solutions to those needs. The approach helps an organization identify specific business objectives that enable standardized products. Product standardization is the foundation for a product line and an associated production process with which the organization can achieve significant improvements in productivity, product quality, manageability, and responsiveness to diverse and changing customer needs.
