The aim of our work is to present solutions and a methodical support for automated techniques and
procedures in domain engineering, in particular for variability modeling. Our approach is based upon Semantic
Modeling concepts, for which semantic description, representation patterns and inference mechanisms are
defined. Thus, model-driven techniques enriched with semantics will allow flexibility and variability in
representation means, reasoning power and the required analysis depth for the identification, interpretation and
adaptation of artifact properties and qualities.
