Goal-driven Product Derivation

By: John D. McGregor


Goal-driven derivation seeks to optimize the set of specified goals of the derivation process and the resulting products. The production goals are derived from the goals stated in the business case by thinking of the qualities the production capability of the product line should possess. For example, “easily extended” is a generally desirable quality for the products derived from a product line. This is often addressed by a very modular design. The production capability must then have sufficient automation to manage a large number of modules that will be mixed and matched to derive a specific product.
