ModuleFamily

A ModuleFamily is a mechanism to group mutually exclusive modules. This could be for example something like "audio equipment", "diesel engine".

In other words, a module family groups different variants of the same basic feature. In a real car configuration only one member of the family can participate. For the example module family "audio equipment" the members may be named: "Basic Audio Equipment", "Standard Audio Equipment", "Premium / High End Audio Equipment".
