SeCSE - In the EU-funded FP6 Integrated Project SeCSE, City developed and evaluated new software tools for discovering on-line software services to meet users' needs. One of these tools retrieved software services that are analogical to the current user problem, thus providing the user with sources of creative thinking to design new services. The tool was evaluated with automotive engineers at Fiat in Italy.
