The authors (Tang et al. (2013)  developed a CoFAQ model to formulate a solution for the problem of production strategy decision and reuse scenario selection for a software product family. In the previous research, we stated that the CoFAQ model was a 0-1 mixed integer nonlinear program, where only a local optimal solution might be found. In a recent study, we found that the CoFAQ could be transformed into a 0-1 mixed integer linear programming model. By solving the model, a global optimal solution can be obtained. In this paper, we present the improved formulation and the optimal solution for the case study.
