Abstract : In an industrial process of production, project managers look for ways to visualise the progress of their project. Reverse engineering projects do not escape this requirement. These projects have the particularity to provide information, more or less accurate, about the whole project, from documentation to source code. Comparison between the number of treated entities (lines of code or entities) and the global corresponding number should ease the task of computing project progress. However, in large projects, studying all entities can be an endless task. Engineers need ways to help them in such a task. This paper sets up the general issue of how to follow progress in a reverse engineering process. We also propose an early solution to this issue and discuss about its improvements.
