Abstract--Feature-oriented software development (FOSD) aims
at the construction, customization, and synthesis of large-scale
software systems. We propose a novel software design paradigm,
called feature-oriented design, that takes the distinguishing char-
acteristics of FOSD into account, especially the clean and consis-
tent mapping between features and their implementations as well
as the tendency of features to interact inadvertently. We extend
the lightweight modeling language Alloy with support for feature-
oriented design and call the extension FeatureAlloy. By means of
an implementation and four case studies, we demonstrate how
feature-oriented design with FeatureAlloy facilitates separation
of concerns, variability, and reuse of models of individual features
and helps defining and detecting semantic dependences and
