This paper describes a method for creating reusable processes and our experience using them in an industrial environment. A notation and process for creating and tailoring reusable processes is described and applied to the building of a 120 process library at PRC Inc. Initial data collected on use of the library indicates large potential payoffs from process reuse such as a 10 to 1 improvement in the time to develop a project specific process.
