This study explores practical experiences of model-based development and implementation, focusing on “lessons identified.” The study draws on experience from several case studies in the Swedish Defence domain using semistructured interviews as the major source of information. The study identifies several conditions as being crucial for successful implementation of model-based development work, including an increased focus on the planning and premodeling phase, a need for interorganizational or across-project collaboration, scalability, change management, and documentation and reuse of experiences. It was also found that most of the challenges identified in the model-based development and implementation processes are common organizational and system development related problems such as change management, the issue of user participation, and how to carry out requirements engineering based on the models. Therefore, future research in the area should aim for a more integrative perspective, for instance, bridging the gap between information collection, models, user needs, and organizational and system requirements
