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.
