This work presents a comparative study of the usage of compositional and annotational approaches in the modularization of software process lines. In our comparative study, an Open-UP based software process line extracted from three existing projects is modelled and implemented using the compositional and annotative approaches with the main aim to address a systematic variability management and automatic process derivation. The results show that the GenArch-P - annotative approach - can bring many advantages to the modelling of software process lines considering our comparison criteria
