This handbook offers a managerial approach to software reuse, its advantages and disadvantages, cost-justification, current reuse efforts, and strategies to implement and deploy reuse in a corporate environment. It shows how to perform a detailed cost/benefit analysis to determine whether software reuse is economically appropriate , and how to apply a proven reuse implementation strategy, complete with tools, training tactics, and standards. It shows how to incorporate reuse in each stage of the traditional software development lifecycle, and how to tackle management challenges such as productivity measurement, organizational structure, motivation and incentives, and the legal implications of reuse.
