In order to enable a smooth transition to product development for an organization that so far did only perform single system development, it is necessary to keep as much of the existing notations and approaches in place as possible.
This requires adaptability of the basic variability management approach to the specific situation at hand. In this paper we describe an approach that enables homogenous variability management across the different life-cycle stages, independent of the specific notation. The approach is accompanied by a meta-model and a process for introducing the variability management approach by developing a notation-independant representation. This approach has so far been applied in several cases where our Product Line engineering method PuLSE has been introduced into a software development organization.
