Variability in Time - Product Line Variability and Evolution Revisited
In its basic form, a variability model describes the variations among similar artifacts from a structural point of view. It does not capture any information about when these variations occur or how they are related to each other in time. traction becomes problematic as soon as time-related aspects become essential for the modeling purpose, e.g., when providing long-term support for a product line or when planning its future strategy. In this paper, we provide an overview of approaches that deal with time-related aspects in variability, which is summarized under "variability in time". In contrast, the modeling of structural commonalities and differences is referred to as "variability in space". We take an inductive approach and survey different uses of the term "variability in time", which turn out to be orthogonal. We generalize the uses and identify three different types: variability of linear change over time (maintenance/evolution), multiple versions at...
