Software Product Line (SPL) approaches enable the development of software product variants by reusing a set of software core assets. These assets could have variant features themselves that can be configured in different ways to provide different behaviours. Unfortunately, in many SPL approaches software core assets are constructed from scratch and in an ad hoc manner.
