Abstract--Variability helps manage differences and
commonalities within and across software systems. As
variability is reflected in and facilitated through the software
architecture, it is important to understand the problems that
architects face when carrying out their tasks. This would help
us improve methods for architecting variability-intensive
software systems. In this paper, we therefore present an
exploratory study to identify problems that occur when
performing variability-related tasks during software
architecting. Our subjects were 27 graduate students. We
identified eleven problems as experienced by the subjects of
our study. The paper also presents implications of the findings
for the software architecture field. In particular, we discuss
