Variant management is required in all stages of product line development. However, traditional software development tools are often focused on single system development.
pure::variants closes this gap by providing a model-based infrastructure for variability modeling and variant definition in all phases of system and software development. This allows existing tools to be augmented to handle variability and variants more efficiently. With its open interfaces, variant information can be used consistently in requirements engineering, during systems design, implementation and also in testing.
