The environment of a university subject provides an opportunity to make process changes and check their effects. To prepare students for an industry placement year, groups of students developed a small but challenging application through a sequence of deliverable documents as well as the coded, functioning system. Over a number of years, software development processes were introduced and revised based on observations of student problems, learning outcomes and the quality of the delivered documents and system. The processes gradually changed from work instruction centred to decision-making centred. Additionally, the common process tasks, the majority, were identified as common. Some observations are made of the applicability of these changes to process based standards.
