Release planning is a very complex problem including different stakeholder perspectives, competing objectives and different types of constraints. Release planning is impacted by a huge number of inherent constraints. Most of the features are not independent from each other. Typically, there are precedence and/or coupling constraints between features that have to be satisfied. Furthermore, effort, resource, and budget constraints have to be fulfilled for each release. The overall goal is to find a relatively small set of the “most promising” release plans such that the overall value and the degree of satisfaction of all the different stakeholders are maximized. The topic of investigation is uncertain and incomplete in its nature.
