Abstract: The model-driven engineering is a theme in full expansion in both the academic and industrial world. It is a generative form of engineering in which all or part of an application is generated from templates. In this article, we studied the contribution of Model Driven Engineering (MDE) in the field of management of variability in Software Product Lines (SLPs). Indeed, the goal of software product lines is to minimize the cost of developing software in a particular application domain. This minimization is due to the design of reusable elements and not to the development of each program separately. We consider an approach to model-driven engineering and engineering fields (Product Lines) as two generative approaches that aim to automate the software development. Our goal is to create an approach for handling product lines using MDE.
