Process model descriptions can be evaluated with respect to their ability to express navigational strategies and constraints in relation to the four important development scenarios (cf. table below).

Being still far from an optimal representation, we need more experiments and at the same time we need to understand better the requirements of the different development scenarios in order to to represent the navigation within them.
