Abstract : Variability modelling and management is pervasive in a growing number of software engineering contexts (e.g., software product lines, dynamic adaptive systems). Feature models are the de facto standard to formally represent and reason about commonality and variability of a software system. This tutorial aims at presenting feature modelling languages and tools, directly applicable to a wide range of model-based variability problems and application domains. We will explain how to import, export, compose, decompose, edit, configure, compute diffs, refactor, reverse engineer, test, or reason about (multiple) feature models. We will also illustrate how these "smart" operations can be combined to realize complex variability management tasks. Participants (being practitioners or academics, beginners or advanced) will learn the principles and foundations of tool-supported techniques dedicated to the model-based management of variability.
