    Search, retrieval and comparison of products in a product line are common tasks during product line evolution. Feature modeling approaches do not easily support these tasks. This vision paper sets out a proposal for a feature-similarity model in which similarity metrics as used for example in case-based reasoning (CBR) are integrated with feature models. We describe potential applications for Product Line Scoping, Domain Engineering and Application Engineering.
