Ten years after the presentation of the tutorial "The Experience Factory: How to Build and Run One" at ICSE 17 in 1995, the idea of building such a Learning Software Organization (LSO) is in wide spread use. Meanwhile the Experience Factory (EF) concept, i.e., the systematic goal-oriented utilization of experience, is also successfully applied outside the domain of Software Engineering.
However, defining and implementing a successful Experience Factory is still a challenge. In this tutorial we take a look at existing concepts on how to identify and structure the content of the experience base (EB), discuss solutions how to implement an EB, and present processes on how to set-up, run, evaluate, and maintain a EF in an organization.
The tutorial is based on the authors' organizations' experiences with implementing EF's in research, industry, and government environments.
