BigLever CEO to Address Processes for Feature-based Product Line Engineering at Method Park Process Insights 2020

Dr. Charles Krueger to Spotlight Role of PLE in Helping to Design, Deliver and Manage Complex Product Lines

AUSTIN, Texas (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — BigLever Software, the long-standing leader in Product Line Engineering (PLE), announced today that its CEO, Dr. Charles Krueger, will be presenting at the annual Method Park Process Insights USA virtual event, Oct. 13-15, 2020. Krueger will share his insights into the growing role of PLE in helping to design, deliver and manage variation across complex product lines.“Product lines are ubiquitous and almost every engineering organization builds at least one, yet, most systems engineering practices are designed to address only a single system,” said Krueger. “This staggering mismatch, and the inability of traditional practices to handle complex variation management, causes profound economic, quality and efficiency issues. During Method Park Process Insights, I’m looking forward to discussing how Feature-based PLE overcomes these issues by providing one unified solution for managing variation based on features, from software to electrical and mechanical domains. I will also provide insight into Feature-based PLE processes and the unique roles and governance structures.”

During the event, BigLever also will be virtually showcasing its industry-standard Gears Product Line Engineering Tool and Lifecycle Framework*, which provides a common set of PLE concepts and constructs to allow engineering processes to flow cleanly and efficiently across the full lifecycle — from requirements to design, implementation, testing, delivery, maintenance and evolution.
