Abstract:
In software product line engineering, a feature model represents the possible configuration space and can be customized based on the stakeholders' needs. Considering the complexity of feature models in addition to the diversity of the stakeholders' expectations, the configuration process is viewed as a complex optimization problem. In this paper, we propose a holistic approach for the configuration process that seeks to satisfy the stakeholders' requirements as well as the feature models' structural and integrity constraints. Here, we model stakeholders' functional and non-functional needs and their preferences using requirement engineering goal models. We formalize the structure of the feature model, the stakeholders' objectives, and their preferences in the form of an integer linear program to automatically perform feature selection.
