Session 3: Applications, Part 1
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 1780)


SPT which have been developed by our research community is barely used in software organisations. This paper tries to discuss the relation between software SPT and software organisations: it first describes some examples of applications to the software industry. Then it tells about an ongoing case in which we are trying to capture SPT requirements from one software organisation which is operating with its own process representation and associated tools.
