Overview

Reuse is one of the simplest and oldest concepts in programming - and one that is often underutilized. When implemented purposefully and correctly, reuse can save time and money as well as create an inventory of valuable and reusable software assets. Dr. Carma McClure, one of the principal writers of the IEEE's Software Reuse Standard 1517, provides clear, concise, and applied information to make effective software reuse based on the reuse standard a reality.

This book provides specific instructions for implementing reuse within the context of the IEEE Software Reuse Process Standard 1517 as well as the IEEE/EIA Standard 12207 - Standard for Information Technology Software Life Cycle Processes. This new guide aids the reader in interpreting the meaning of the standard, implementing the standard, and applying the standard. Like IEEE Std. 1517, this book is written for both managers and technical personnel involved in acquiring, supplying, or developing software applications and systems or reusable assets.
