Abstract

Predicting the behavior of a product before it is built has been a long time struggle, especially for software based systems. For building software systems there are few methods that comply with the engineering methods established from physics where properties of construction can be determined before the actual assembly of a product. By taking the predictable assembly from certifiable components (PACC) approach our intention is define methods to predict certain properties. We conclude that product line architectures that build on top of a component technology can be build in a much more controlled way if the component technology is prediction enabled. The aim of this position paper is to investigate how embedded product line architectures can utilize a prediction enabled component technology to build products with known properties. We present a framework where we can reason about extra-functional properties in a uniformed way. We illustrate our approach by an example including several different extra-functional properties.
