In Software Product Line Engineering, concrete products of a family can be generated through a configuration process over a feature model. The configuration process selects features from the feature model according to the stakeholders' requirements. Selecting the right set of features for one product from all the available features in the feature model is a cumber-some task because the stakeholders may have diverse business concerns and limited resources that they can spend on a product and features may have negative and positive contributions on different business concern. Many configurations techniques have been proposed to facilitate software developers' tasks through automated product derivation.
