BigLever Software’s Gears 7.2, the latest version of the company’s industry-standard product line engineering (PLE) lifecycle framework, delivers multistage configuration capabilities needed for engineering organizations to create, deliver, maintain, and evolve their entire product family tree based on product line features. Gears 7.2 supports the engineering, deployment, and maintenance of complex product family trees by enabling feature selections and "downselections" (features removed from consideration) to be incrementally staged throughout the nodes in a product family tree. Feature decisions made at any node are inherited by all descendants of that node, thereby defining a product family subtree. For example, an automotive manufacturer might structure their product line portfolio into a family tree with five levels: platform, program, regional program, trim level, and vehicle instance.
