Abstract: Since software product lines emerged, various techniques have provided for commonality and variability modelling of functionally similar products within a given domain. However, so far the emphasis of variability modelling proposals has mostly been on the solution rather than the requirements level, which is mainly due to stakeholders often associating variability with the software implementation instead of the problem analysis. Taken into consideration the positive impact that a high-quality system requirements specification plays within a software project, this paper proposes and evaluates an innovative approach for the modelling and management of variability at the requirements level, based on the Common Variability Language (CVL), the OMG proposal for a domain-independent variability modelling standard. This approach has been implemented as a core feature of the ITBox system, a Web-based collaborative platform for the management of technical documentation.
