Feature models provide an effective way to capture commonality and variability in a specific domain. Constructing a feature model needs a systematic review of existing software artifacts in a domain and is always a collaboration-intensive activity. However, existing feature modeling methods and tools lack explicit support of such collaborations. In this paper, we present an environment for feature modeling that promotes the collaboration between stakeholders as the basis of creating and evolving a feature model. We present concepts, methods, and a tool to show the feasibility of constructing feature models collaboratively, as well as how to integrate this environment with traditional feature modeling methods.
