Abstract--A software product line is a family of related
software products, typically, generated from a set of common
assets. Users can select features to derive a product that fulfills
their needs. Often, users expect a product to have specific non-
functional properties, such as a small footprint or a minimum
response time. Because a product line can contain millions of
products, it is usually not feasible to generate and measure non-
functional properties for each possible product of a product
line. Hence, we propose an approach to predict a product's non-
functional properties, based on the product's feature selection. To
this end, we generate and measure a small set of products, and
by comparing the measurements, we approximate each feature's
