2011 2011 26th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Automated Software Engineering (ASE 2011)  
The configuration process selects and/or removes features from the feature model according to the stakeholders' requirements.  ...  Selecting the right set of features for one product from amongst all of the available features in the feature model is a complex task because: 1) the multiplicity of stakeholders' functional requirements  ...  Configuring a feature model based on the stakeholders' requirements and preferences usually means se-lecting features such that a feature model configuration satisfies the stakeholders' functional requirements  ...

Formalizing interactive staged feature model configuration

Ebrahim Bagheri, Tommaso Di Noia, Dragan Gasevic, Azzurra Ragone
2011 Journal of Software: Evolution and Process  
Feature models symbolize an overarching representation of the possible application configuration space, and can hence be customized based on specific domain requirements and stakeholder goals.  ...  In this paper, we will show how the structure and constraints of a feature model can be modeled uniformly through Propositional Logic extended with concrete domains, called P(N ).  ...  A final fully-specific feature model with no points for further customization is called a configuration of the feature model based on the selected features.  ...

Preference-based Conflict Resolution for Collaborative Configuration of Product Lines

Sabrine Edded, Sihem Ben Sassi, Raul Mazo, Camille Salinesi, Henda Ben Ghezala
2020 Proceedings of the 15th International Conference on Evaluation of Novel Approaches to Software Engineering  
In this paper, we propose a new collaborative configuration approach which allows conflict resolution based on stakeholders preferences expressed through a set of substitution rules.  ...  Based on such preferences, we delete the minimal set of conflicting configuration decisions which are identified using the Minimal Correction Subsets (MCSs) computing algorithm.  ...  PROPOSED APPROACH To cope with collaborative configuration issues, we propose a new configuration approach where stakeholders freely express their configuration decisions and conflicts are resolved based  ...

Yijun Yu, Julio Cesar Sampaio do Prado Leite, Alexei Lapouchnian, John Mylopoulos
2008 Proceedings of the 2008 ACM symposium on Applied computing - SAC '08  
Goal models are effective in capturing stakeholder needs at the time when features of the system-to-be have not yet been conceptualized.  ...  In this paper, we present a new model-driven extension to an Early Requirements Engineering tool (OpenOME) that generates an initial feature model of the systemto-be from stakeholder goals.  ...  Acknowledgement The authors thank Peter Kim and Krzysztof Czarnecki at University of Waterloo for their help with OpenOME/FMP integration.  ...

Additionally, capturing stakeholders' preferences and applying them during the course of software feature configuration have not been taken into account and addressed in the proposed approaches.  ...  As a result of this initial study, we find out the majority of approaches lacks proper techniques for supporting the validation of family requirements models as well as dealing with delta requirements.  ...  Cardinality-based Feature Modeling (CBFM) Cardinality-based feature modeling proposes extending the original FODA notation with UML-like multiplicities (so-called cardinalities).  ...

Dynamic decision models for staged software product line configuration

Ebrahim Bagheri, Faezeh Ensan
2013 Requirements Engineering  
is concerned with the configuration of a product line into one concrete product based on the preferences and requirements of the stakeholders.  ...  Initial exploratory empirical experiments that we have performed show that our proposed approach for helping stakeholders understand their feature preferences and its associated staged feature model configuration  ...  It is clear that different stakeholders have different preferences and hence based on the stakeholder performing the staged configuration process, the utility of the features would be different.  ...

Participatory Service Design through Composed and Coordinated Service Feature Models [chapter]

Erik Wittern, Nelly Schuster, Jörn Kuhlenkamp, Stefan Tai
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We present a service-oriented approach for engineering design artifacts: service feature models are introduced as compositions of model parts that can be contributed by different stakeholders and software  ...  Active participation of diverse stakeholders such as consumers or experts in service engineering is critical.  ...  During the configuration phase, constraints and preferences are specified based on requirements. Requirements are collected from stakeholders, for instance citizens in public service design.  ...

A systematic literature review on the semi-automatic configuration of extended product lines

Lina Ochoa, Oscar González-Rojas, Alves Pereira Juliana, Harold Castro, Gunter Saake
2018 Journal of Systems and Software  
In product line literature, mass customisation is known as product configuration. Currently, there are multiple heterogeneous contributions in the product line configuration domain.  ...  As main results, our review identified (i) the need to improve the quality of the evaluation of existing approaches, (ii) a lack of hybrid solutions to support multiple configuration constraints, and (  ...  This approach does not necessarily mean that we are dealing with environments with multiple PLs. Sometimes, models are used to complement the information provided in another model.  ...

Erik Wittern, Jörn Kuhlenkamp, Michael Menzel
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Filtering produces a reduced number of valid Cloud service configurations that can be further assessed with current multi-criteria decision making-based selection approaches.  ...  We use Cloud feature models (CFMs) as a representation mechanism and describe how they are utilized for requirements elicitation and filtering within a presented Cloud service selection process (CSSP)  ...  However, our approach takes an explicit process model, re-usability of models and multiple stakeholders into account.  ...
