Shows how to perform a detailed cost/benefit analysis to determine whether software reuse is economically appropriate for an organization; apply a proven reuse implementation strategy complete with tools (classification scheme and software workproducts library), training tactics, and standards; follow guidelines for incorporating reuse in each stage of the traditional software development life cycle; and tackle tough managerial challenges such as labor issues, productivity measurement, organizational structure, motivation/incentives for engineers, and legal implications of software reuse.
