Cloning is a general approach to create new functionality within variants as well as new system variants. It is a fast, flexible, intuitive, and economical approach to evolve systems in the short run. However, in the long run, the maintenance effort increases. A common solution to this problem is the extraction of a product line from a set of cloned variants. This process requires a detailed analysis of variants to extract variability information. However, clones within a variant are usually<span class="external-identifiers"> <a target="_blank" rel="external noopener" href="https://arxiv.org/abs/2104.05602v1">arXiv:2104.05602v1</a> <a target="_blank" rel="external noopener" href="https://fatcat.wiki/release/45yctvw7svey7bdbr4grixqg2i">fatcat:45yctvw7svey7bdbr4grixqg2i</a> </span>

This thesis proposes an extractive multi product-line engineering approach to re-establish the sustainable development of software variants. We propose an approach to re-engineer intra-system and inter-system clones into reusable, configurable components stored in an integrated platform and synthesize a matching multi-layer feature model.
