Reuse is a highly favored concept in software engineering community, but it is the essence of successful Software Product Line (SPL) development, which enables the reuse of different types of software artifacts. Focus of this paper is on the reuse of SPL requirements: an ontology-based requirements reuse method is introduced for systematic reuse of product line requirements which is composed of an ontology-based approach for reusable requirements definition and a requirements configuration approach for the reuse of requirements. Evaluation of the introduced approach is performed on fire control software projects and results are discussed.
