    Abstract

    In this paper, we consider the problem of merging feature models which consist of trees with "requires" and "excludes" constraints. For any two such feature models which are parent-compatible, their merge is defined to be the smallest parent-compatible feature model which has all products of the constituents. We show how the specification can be implemented, present a number of properties of the merged feature models and give some examples.
