- The very first group meeting!
If you were not one of the participants of the first group meeting arranged by RAIN; I can only feel sorry for you. Especially if you are working with object oriented modelling.
Start - Adriana Prieto
"The Rational Approach in practice" - Thomas Guggenbichler (Frontec)
The best things about ROP and ROSE, according to Thomas is that the model and the implementation always are synchronised, even though Frontec does not work with reverse-engineering in ROSE. Thomas also praised God (or whom he might have meant) for coloured source code since ROSE generates a heavy load of comment lines, among which you have to find the "real code" Other big advantages with ROP and ROSE are that you can build LARGE models without problems and that a lot of designers can work with the system at the same time.
However, switching from Booch to UML gave a LOT of work according to Thomas.
"pROPs" - Anders Gymnander (AU-System)
Anders first listed a few items that has been important in the work with making PROPS and ROP together:
Does it work? Yes, Anders knows since his team at AU-System is using the method. Anders also gave an example from RL where AU-System acted as a subproject to a larger development project at Ericsson. We also got a lesson in how a Call Centre works.
Finally, Anders told us about his experiences from introducing the new method in the organisation, and what he thinks are the central parts of ROP.
The final, ROP v5.0 - Per Kröll (Rational)
Per was very interested in the experiences that Thomas and Anders had been showing us and asked us if there were anything else that we wanted to see in future versions of ROP. This is one of the man advantages with a user group and it felt very good to get this direct line for feed back.
Well, we almost kept the remade schedule that Adriana presented (leaving Rational at 18.30). We look forward to more meetings. CU there!
