In Product Line Architectures, a reference architecture is designed for a family of software systems that share a set of common properties. Variability points are used to capture variations among the different family members. Different product architectures within the family are then derived from the reference architecture based on the set of features chosen for each given product. No methods have been formalized yet on how to derive product architectures from a reference architecture. This process can, in many cases, be very time consuming especially with large-scale systems comprising thousands of variability points. In this case, manual techniques could become tedious and would introduce a high error margin which makes the need for automation and tool support of high importance.
