Mapping Architectural Concepts to SysML Profile for Product Line Architecture Modeling
There are different proposals for modelling Product Line Architecture. To model the Product Line Architecture (PLA), the most important elements are the explicit treatment of its commonality and variability representation. This paper concentrates on the use of Architecture Description Language (ADL) and its integration with object oriented modeling, for the representation of architecture in order to model PLA architecture construct and variability construct effectively. Consequently, the possibility of integration which involves the mapping between the xADL and SysML a UML2 based profile extension to enable the profile to be incorporated to an existing UML commercial tool was investigated.
