For more than twenty years, a group based supervision strategy has been used when supervising engineering students at our research group. In recent years, we have formalised the approach and used our industry experience to create a successful framework. Conceptually, the student is treated as a project leader in a private company, where he is responsible for producing a project plan, a risk analysis, and weekly reports that describes the project progress with regards to the project plan. This paper is a best practice guide aiming at research groups that would like to implement our supervision approach.
