Managing software products during software development is essential. A model is needed to model products and facilitates product management. Important product management functions include: 1) version control, 2) configuration management, 3) product consistency management, 4) reference completeness management, and 5) product reuse support. This paper proposes a product model to facilitate the functions above. Since product relationships play important roles in product management, the proposed model especially emphasizes them.

Keywords: product management, product relationship, product model, version control, configuration management
