It is generally acknowledged that the decision to adopt a software product line engineering (SPLE) approach needs to be performed carefully due to the di• erent risks involved in taking such an important decision. To mitigate the potential risks of the transition to SPLE, several studies have been proposed that include many di• erent rules for analyzing the feasibility of the SPLE adoption and the selection of transition process. However, it is not easy to apply these manually and likewise provide a proper decision with the corresponding justification. In this paper, we propose the tool Transit-PL, a web based decision support system for analyzing the feasibility of SPLE for an organization and selecting the appropriate transition strategy. Transit-PL provides a framework to build particular decision support system for selected strategies using di• erent types of questions and corresponding rules and set of answers. Copyright 2013 ACM.
