We discuss the Bose-Einstein interference effect in multi-particle production. After a short review of various methods of implementation of this effect into Monte Carlo generators the weight method is presented in more detail and used to analyze the data for hadronic Z0 decays. In particular, we consider the possibility of deducing the two-particle weight factor from the experimental data.
