Traditional product line approaches struggle with complexity and weak evolution support. We propose an evolutionary software product line modelling approach based on controllable inheritance of product line members specifications. Instead of a predefined product line architecture we use hierarchies of implemented product specifications plus correctness control of product model transformations. The approach is supported by an appropriate tool prototype.
