Abstract

With regard to the increasing importance of software components in technical systems, this paper presents an adaptation of the concept of functions considering the nature of software as an abstract logical system. The method is part of a software component repository, which supports structured description of software components for internal re-use or electronic marketplaces. The repository uses the concept of functions and a life cycle-oriented hierarchy of software product characteristics to facilitate the identification of potential solutions and the evaluation of their applicability and adaptability. The application example is the field of automation technology, but the results are applicable in other domains as well.
