    163   Generalizable solutions are designed and/or implemented in a way that they can be generalized. Typically, they separate their core patterns/algorithms from the use-case specifics through parametrization and/or configuration patterns. This can be defined as a quality requirement for a solution.
     163  Generalizable solutions are designed and/or implemented in a way that they can be generalized. Typically, they separate their core patterns/algorithms from the use-case specifics through parametrization and/or configuration patterns. This can be defined as an advanced quality requirement for a solution.

    165165  Generalization means to modify and/or extend the core patterns/algorithms of the solution in a way that they can be re-used in other solutions which involve the same or similar functional requirements, thereby reducing future development efforts. There is a wide range of quality attributes - "flexible", "customizable", "re-usable", "extensible", just to name a few - all of which involve different degrees of and approaches to generalization.

    175175  Apart from that, generalization can make maintenance more difficult: developers who do not recognize/understand the general case can (and often do) re-introduce use-case specifics into generic code, thereby reducing its efficiency and flexibility, potentially causing side effects on other solution, and complicating maintenance.
