    When modelling and maintaining a product configuration system (PCS) there is a need for a complete and updated documentation of the system. This research work focuses on a framework for documenting PCSs based on structures, data and constraints already implemented in the PCS. Looking at previously suggested PCS documentation, systems focus on creating the documentation separated from PCS. Documenting the PCS separately request extra time and resources. We suggest building the PCS models and then extracting the structure, data and constraints for documentation from PCS. This makes the task of documentation easier and less time consuming.
