This document, within the context of methods and tools for product line product management:
— defines product line-specific processes and their subprocesses for product management of software and systems product lines. Those processes are described in terms of purpose, inputs, tasks and outcomes;
— defines method capabilities to support the defined tasks of each process;
— defines tool capabilities to automate/semi-automate tasks or defined method capabilities.
This document does not concern processes and capabilities of tools and methods for a single system but rather deals with those for a family of products.
