Abstract

In system design, the distinction between a logical architecture at design level and the corresponding physical distributed architecture at implementation level is recognised as good practice. In this paper we show how we can define logical architectures in which variation points can be defined explicitly. Such architectures define families of systems, and should therefore be useful for defining such families in IoT.
