Software development organizations today have to deliver products fast and tailored to the specific needs of customers. Software Product Line Engineering (PLE) has proven to support organizations in reducing time to market and increase the level of customization, but still software is not produced with similar efficiency than many hard goods today. We claim that organizations can improve the efficiency of software development if they apply a software production approach similar to other engineering disciplines. Key to successful software production is a product line architecture that is aligned with the production plan. As a first, step we introduce a conceptual model of software production that captures the relationship between the product line architecture and the production plan.
