This report provides guidance for the community involved with developing and sustaining product lines of components used by the U.S. government. It complements and should be read together with, the complementary SEI Component Product Line (CPL) special reports: A Strategy for Component Product Lines: Report 1: Scoping, Objectives, and Rationale and A Strategy for Component Product Lines: Report 2: Specification Modeling for Components in a Component Product Line. Whereas the strategy outlines the overall intent and game plan for implementing a component product line approach (the “what” and the “why”), this governance report provides critical insight into “how” the authors envision a successful initiative to be implemented. For additional guidance related to specific implementation in a model-based environment, consult the modeling report. Some of the scenarios used in this report to illustrate Component Product Line Governance are also used in the modeling report.
