An explicit variability management is essential for large product lines. With an explicit variability management, we also need explicit strategies for instantiating the managed variabilities during application engineering. In this paper we motivate the necessity of strategies for large variability models, which help to identify starting points and guide the resolution of variability models.
Moreover we give a concrete list of such strategies and evaluate their applicability based on different context information. We also sketch the application of the strategies in a tool.
