Domain-Specific Modeling offers a language-based approach to raise
the level of abstraction in order to speed up development work and set variation
space already at specification and design phase. In this paper we identify
approaches that are applied for defining languages that enable automated
variant derivation. This categorization is based on analyzing over 20 industrial
cases of DSM language definition.
