Business processes have proven to be essential for organisations to be highly flexible and competitive in today’s markets. However, good process management is not enough to survive in a market if the according IT landscape is not aligned to the business processes. Especially industries focused on software products are facing big problems if the according processes are not aligned to the overall software system architecture. Often, a lot of development resources are spent for features which are never addressed by any business goals, leading to unnecessary development costs. In this paper, we will present a framework for an automatic, order process driven, software configuration. For this, modern software product line engineering techniques are used to provide a systematic way to align the variability of the order processes with the software architecture.
