In this paper we propose a mathematical program able to
optimize the product portfolio scope of a software product
line and sketch both a development and a release planning.
Our model is based on the description of customer needs
in terms of goals. We show that this model can be instantiated in several contexts such as a market customization strategy or a mass-customization strategy. It can deal with Software Product Line development from scratch as well as starting from a legacy software base. We demonstrate its
applicability with an example based on a case study.
