Project title: Modelling Feature Similarities in software Product Lines

This thesis aims to conduct a systematic investigation in comparing the similarity of a planned feature, feature group or product against what is available already in one or more existing products. Understanding what features are similar across different products, or what and how some products are similar to other products, becomes very difficult as a product line evolves into tens, hundreds or even thousands of products each with many features. This project is investigating software product line modelling techniques that can best support the recognition and retrieval of similar features and feature combinations across a product line.
