Product Family Meta-Model Definition


O. Rohlik, A. Pasetti

pp. 29, ASSERT project deliverable

This document is the first deliverable from task 4.2.3 of the ASSERT project (deliverable D4.2.3-1). Task 4.2.3 is concerned with the development of a product family modelling tool. A product family is a set of systems that are built from the same pool of reusable assets. The product family modelling tool is intended to allow users to build a model that describes the set of systems that belong to the family. The tool proposed in task 4.2.3 is based on the XFeature tool. The XFeature tool was initially developed under a separate R&D activity (ESA Contract 18499/04/NL/MV) and is being extended for the ASSERT project. The tool is based on feature modelling techniques. It allows users to define the common features that are shared by all systems in the family and the variable features that differentiate systems within the family. XFeature is a meta-modelling tool in the sense that it allows users to define their own family meta-model. This document gives an overview of the tool and it defines the family meta-model that was defined to support the development of a software product family for ASSERT. The XFeature tool is built as a plug-in for the Eclipse platform and is available as free and open software under the terms of the General Public Licence.
