Feature modeling is used to express commonality and variability among a family of software products called the software product line. To offer customized products to their customers, organizations need to build packages of features taking into consideration customer needs and preferences. This paper presents a platform named SPLP (Software Product Line Profiling) which allows pre-configuring feature models through the restriction of the configuration space to meet the requirements of a specific market segment. Considering that concerns and preferences of this latter are a key criteria to achieve a tailored pre-configuration, authors propose the integration of user profiling in the SPLP platform through the definition of a user profile model describing information about the user and the products he is used to consume. This information is then exploited by the SPLP platform to perform an automated pre-configuration according to each user profile requirements and preferences.
