The course Mastering Variant Complexity aims at exploiting the potential behind value-adding variants in software-intensive system families and shows how to master the inherent complexity well-aligned with business goals. To this end, the course provides best practices, proven industrial strength approaches including methods and tools in the area of strategic reuse, system and software product line engineering, platform engineering, and variant / complexity management.

The course addresses a key challenge of software and systems engineering these days: providing and maintaining customized solutions of increasing complexity, while keeping the pace of the market in terms of speed, cost, and quality. It provides best practices, proven industrial strength approaches including methods and tools in the area of strategic reuse, system and software product line engineering, platform engineering, and variant / complexity management. The course content is illustrated along examples from different application domains.

With a combination of blended learning techniques (virtual class room, videos, and group assignments) the course provides great learning experience and efficiency in understanding the content, applying it to real world problems, and embedding it to the daily work context.

 

Target Groups

The target participants are professionals working as product (line) managers, system architects, and embedded system and software engineers, innovation managers, marketing experts.The course delivers learning content which supports the participants in addressing the variant complexity challenges in their daily work.
