Managing Software Re-Use (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


For IS (Information Systems) managers and engineers and anyone in the governmental and commercial sectors responsible for software productivity and quality and project planning and budgeting.

The active reuse of software is one of the most promising avenues for a dramatic increase in software productivity. 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. 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.
