English abstract:
Real-world cases describing (product) variability in production systems are rare and often not accessible. Thus, researchers often use
toy examples or develop fictitious case studies. These are designed
to demonstrate their approach but rarely to compare multiple approaches. In this paper, we aim at making variability modeling
evaluations comparable. We present and provide a reusable set
of four real-world case studies that are easy to access, with artifacts represented in a universal, variability-model-agnostic way,
the industrial Product-Process-Resource Domain-Specific Language
(PPR DSL). We report how researchers can use the case studies,
automatically transforming the Domain-Specific Language (DSL)
artifacts to well-known variability models, e.g., product feature
models, using the Variability Evolution Roundtrip Transformation
(VERT) process. We compare the expressiveness and complexity of
the transformed feature models. We argue that the case studies with
the DSL and the flexible transformation capabilities build a valuable
contribution to making future research results more comparable
and facilitating evaluations with real-world product lines.
