Product line (PL) is a development method eases software development for more kind's software by requirement from the market. In PL development, commonalities and variabilities between each product are represented as features mean characteristics and functions. We proposed Reusable Asset Specification (RAS) based representation of core assets for the PL. However, RAS has development asset information and relation information between features and development assets. It is convenient to develop this information separately. We propose a FRM model for development assets in the PL. This model consists of feature model and divided RAS. Furthermore, we developed a tool which assist software development with FRM model, and show a case study of ECU development with FRM model.
