In this chapter we outline the modeling of the PC configuration knowledge base with VariSales. VariSales is based on object-oriented knowledge representations with a clear underlying semantics. The VariSales environment consists of a semivisual Modeling Tool and a web-based Configuration Tool. It applies an inference engine that follows the logic-based Answer Set Programming (ASP) paradigm.
