Metamodels and feature models : complementary approaches to formalize product comparison matrices

Guillaume Bécan 1, 2
Abstract : Product Comparison Matrices (PCMs) abound on the Web. They provide a simple representation of the characteristics of a set of products. However, the lack of formalization and the large diversity of PCMs challenges the development of software for processing these matrices. In this thesis, we develop two complementary approaches for the formalisation of PCMs. The first one consists in a precise description of the structure and semantics of PCMs in the form of a metamodel. We also propose an automated transformation from PCMs to PCM models conformant to the metamodel. The second one consists in synthesizing attributed feature models from a class of PCMs. With our contributions, we propose a generic and extensible approach for the formalization and exploitation of PCMs.
