I'm building a tailorable organizational process definition in EPF, and am
looking for tips on how to implement tailoring by individual projects.

I'm currently thinking that projects will need to create a plug-in that
references the standard process, and create Contributes, Extends, Replaces
method elements where needed, then either add a Configuration view for the
project or publish to a separate Web site.

Anyone have thoughts on this?

hi Rob,

we start process modeling processes in our organization on two levels:
1. one Method Plugin -
company processes (as finance, pr, hr and so on) with generally
defined life-cycle model (lcm)
separated in 3 content packages (strategy, support, lcm)
2. project tailored lcm (each one Method Plugin) with connection to first
level

this mean that Method Plugins from second level has a connection to 1st
level
and use variability connections to Method Element from there.

question is, if one Method Plugin for 1st level is a good idea,
but for now it looks ok and as a simplest solution.
use one method configuration per project sounds good.

of course this really depends on a way how you model
(team, responsibilities, qa in company) ....

all the best,
jan

ps: question is how to model/connect knowledge base elements. :-)
