Software Product Line engineering allows companies to realise significant improvements in time-to-market, cost, productivity, and system quality. One major difficulty with software product lines is that within industry there may exist thousands of variation points in a single product line. This scale of variability can become extremely complex to manage resulting in a product configuration process that bears significant costs. This paper presents a feature configuration meta-model and introduces a prototype tool that employs visualisation and interaction techniques to provide feature configuration functionality.
