    We discuss TABASCO, a method for constructing Domain-Specific Toolkits (DSTs). We present TABASCO in the context of domain engineering and generative programming. We discuss the steps of TABASCO in detail, suggesting a new approach for taxonomy creation based on concept lattices as an enhancement of previous approaches. We focus on the software construction side, giving examples based on actual applications of the method. In doing so, we show that TABASCO is a domain engineering method aimed at a particular kind of software domain, and how this method is applied in practice.
