Limited Points of Variability

Summary: When creating a pattern, how do we ensure that the user of the pattern is not overwhelmed and confused by the configuration and customization options for the pattern? Limit the number and types of points of variability. Ensure that the pattern provides the most important points of variability and then uses calculations and assumptions to leverage the user-provided information.
