Product Line Hall of Fame

A hall of fame serves as a way to recognize distinguished members of a community in a field of endeavor. Those elected to membership in a hall of fame represent the highest achievement in their field, serving as models of what can be achieved and how.

Each Software Product Line Conference (SPLC) culminates with a session in which members of the audience nominate systems for induction into the Software Product Line Hall of Fame. Those nominations feed discussions about what constitutes excellence and success in product lines. The goal is to improve software product line practice by identifying the best examples in the field.

Nominations are voted on at the next SPLC by the majority of those present. For example, the Bosch Gasoline Systems: Engine Control Software Product Line and Philips Low-End Television Product Line were nominated at SPLC 2006. The Bosch Gasoline Systems: Engine Control Software Product Line was inducted at SPLC 2007.
