Abstract: Software Product Lines (SPLs) have been used to provide support to the development of context-aware applications, which use context information to perform customized services aiming to satisfy users needs or environment restrictions. In this scenario, feature models have been also used to guide product adaptation process and to enable systematic reuse. However, a side effect of using those models is the accidental inclusion of inconsistencies that may imply in several errors in the adapted products. Moreover, context-aware applications are exposed to a contextual change flow, which increases the occurrence and effects of such erros. Therefore, mechanisms to check the inconsistencies are necessary before they become errors in the adapted product. Nevertheless, a manual checking is highly error prone. In particular, there are inconsistencies that can be detected only when they arise due to a specific adaptation. For those reasons, it is essencial to identify errors in the context-aware feature model before they yield incorrect adapted products. In this work, we present an Eclipse-based tool that supports the software engineer in the design of context-aware feature models and provides a simulation process to allow anticipating inconsistencies related to the adaptations.
