The Software Factory methodology is based on recognition of these similarities and a drive to extend the concept of "reusability" to the point where we achieve entirely automated product lines. Based on an analysis and understanding of the common features and techniques of a set of applications, a Software Factory defines a tailored, end-to-end methodology for building these applications. At the heart of the Software factory methodology is the concept of Domain Specific Languages (DSLs), which in essence are development environments specifically tailored to the set of applications in hand. It removes a certain degree of flexibility but greatly enhances productivity by removing a lot of the coding complexity (for an analogy, consider the use of the now ubiquitous drag-and-drop controls in Winforms or Visual Basic).
Further, in the SF methodology, patterns, process advice, and best practices can be harvested and applied for all applications in the set.
There are some good books on the theory of SF already on the market. Up until this point, a lot of these concepts were fairly theoretical and abstract.

Gunther Lenz is the Program Manager for System Migration & Integration at Siemens Corporate Research in Princeton, NJ and a pioneer in the field of Software Factories. Within Siemens Corporate Technology he leads the global efforts on Software Factories and Microsoft Technologies. His current research is focusing on Model Driven Software Development (MDSD) and Software Factories.
He is the author of the Book ".NET-A Complete Development Cycle", invited member of the Microsoft Software Design Review team (for Visual Studio Team System and Indigo) and received the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) - Solution Architect award. Gunther frequently presents at internal and external conferences on subjects related to Software Engineering. Examples of his external presentations are:
Enterprise Architect Summit 2005, Key Biscayne Fl, May 23rd 2005: Presentation "Software Factories in the Enterprise, the business case"
UML World, Austin TX, June 16th 2005: Class "MDA vs. Software Factories, an in depth comparison".
Christoph Wienands joined Siemens Corporate Research in Princeton, NJ, in 2004, with his broad knowledge and experience in important technology fields as the ideal prerequisite. Current research activities are in the field of model-driven approaches for software development, in particular domain-specific languages and software factories. The goal is to introduce new software development paradigms concern-wide, propagate reuse of existing assets and streamline software production.

From the reviews:
"The purpose of this work is to introduce and demystify the concept of software factories in the .NET environment. ... The book covers both the theory and practice of software factories, including an acknowledgment of the genesis of the term in the late 1960s. ... this book is recommended reading for people involved in the management of large software development groups, particularly ones that develop many similar products. It provides a good theoretical discussion, and practical illustration ... in the creation of software solutions." (Neil D. Burgess, ACM Computing Reviews, Vol. 49 (3), March, 2008)
