In agile software development refactoring is an important phase for the continuous improvement of software quality. Unfortunately, the application of refactorings is very subjective and heavily based on the expertise of the developers resulting in an unstable quality assurance. In this paper, we present an experiencebased approach for the semi-automatic and goal-oriented refactoring of software systems based on didactical augmented experiences, following the experience factory paradigm. This approach promises the accelerated acquisition, (re-) use, and learning of knowledge in the refactoring process.
