Lessons from the EUREX Workshops



Workshops were used by the EUREX project as a principal means for collection and processing of PIE experiences. The workshops were organised by regions in order to facilitate PIE participation both from a travelling point of view and from a language point of view. The partners arranged the workshops in order to develop the common themes in accordance with the EUREX taxonomy. SISU, the Nordic EUREX partner arranged four workshops on Configuration and Change Management, Metrics and Lifecycle, Object Orientation, Components and Reuse, Requirements and Testing, all in Stockholm. The participating PIEs were Norwegian, Finnish and Danish as well as Swedish. An additional metrics workshop was organised and conducted in the UK.
