Nowadays, consumer-oriented industries like the Internet of Things, are highly affected by short product cycles and high pricing pressure. Agile and process-oriented organizations are known to perform better in such flexible environments. However, especially industries which are focused on delivering low cost systems are facing big challenges if the according Business Processes are not aligned with the capabilities of the product. Furthermore, non-functional requirements like safety and security are often not integrated in the early stages of a project, but later on added as a kind of extension, leading to a lower product maturity. With this work, we extend our framework for combined variability management in order to create an integrated view on the product variability from an organizational point, as well as from a technical view, including security requirements from the early development.
