Self-organized reuse of artifacts from software and system development, using the lightweight Wiki-Technology, promises a sustainable preservation and availability of business-critical information. However, due to the organic, sometimes chaotic growth of content inside a Wiki, additional support for structuring the knowledge and finding interrelated useful(More)
esearchers have studied and created a wide range of techniques to support software engineers during development. This article reports parts of the results of a survey of 135 participants that has been conducted in Germany to shed light on the usage and demand of intelligent assistance in software engineering activities. The survey showed that there is a(More)
Experience Management (EM) is an area that is increasingly gaining importance. Its roots lie in Experimental Software Engineering ("Experience Factory"), in Artificial Intelligence ("Case-Based Reasoning"), and in Knowledge Management. knowledge, as well as for development, improvement, and execution of all knowledge-related processes. The main difference(More)
Both disciplines – AI and SE – share the need to answer with structure (either called variables or data structures, or information or knowledge) when confronted with a real world scenario. This article discusses how SE Knowledge may be maintained and constantly cultivated among software engineers, adopting the well known Wiki concept based on approaches(More)
Business Processes and Lessons Learned are valuable experiences of an organization. By integrating them, synergies can be leveraged. This integration was practically evaluated in the Corporate Information Network (COIN) initiative of Fraunhofer IESE, a project that officially started in January 2000. COIN combines "learning from project experience" with(More)
Within this paper we describe the indiGo approach to preparation, moderation, and analysis of discourses to enhance experience management. In the indiGo project this has been exemplified for the process learning domain. indiGo includes an integration of approaches for e-participation, experience management, process modeling and publishing, as well as text(More)
The development of software is often accompanied by poor documentation of experiences, decisions, or architectural information. Reuse of experiences and knowledge, using the lightweight Wiki-Technology, promises a sustainable assurance and availability of business-critical information. In this paper we give an overview of the RISE research project (Reuse In(More)
The indiGo project offers a solution for tackling resistance against and problems while executing process models: eParticipative Process Learning. Via moderated, web-based discussions, consensus about a process is created and process models are reviewed to achieve better understandability or other quality aspects. Furthermore , problems during the execution(More)
