Abstract: Developing dashboards is a complex domain, especially when sev-eral stakeholders are involved; while some users could demand certain indica-tors, other users could demand specific visualizations or design features. Creating individual dashboards for each potential need would consume several resources and time, being an unfeasible approach. Also, user requirements must be thoroughly analyzed to understand their goals regarding the data to be explored, and other characteristics that could affect their user experience. All these necessities ask for a paradigm to foster reusability not only at development level but also at knowledge level. Some methodologies, like the Software Product Line paradigm, leverage domain knowledge and apply it to create a series of assets that can be composed, parameterized, or combined to obtain fully functional systems. This work presents an application of the SPL paradigm to the domain of information dashboards, with the goal of reducing their development time and increasing their effectiveness and user experience. Dif-ferent dashboard configurations have been suggested to test the proposed approach in the context of the Education in the Knowledge Society PhD pro-gramme of the University of Salamanca.
