A project to develop a new system, Core Master 2, was undertaken in Sweden in 1990. This is a relatively large system for nuclear power plant core engineering. Main project goals were to increase end-user productivity while reducing user-induced errors and software life-cycle costs. To meet them and improve software quality, object-oriented technology was adopted. The software process became much slower than expected. Learning aspects related to the new technology and changing specifications account for most of the delay. The first version is now ready and is obtainable. Lessons learned from the process, education and training are discussed.
