However, development for reuse requires additional costs that are difficult to justify under a(More)
The concept of systematic software reuse is simple: the idea of building and using "software preferred parts." By building systems out of carefully designed, pre-tested components, one will save the cost of designing, writing and testing new code. The practice of reuse has not proven to be this simple however, and there are many misconceptions about how to(More)

This position paper describes the initial ideas of a new project, aimed at developing an Objectory-based Reuse Factory. This work is a research collaboration between Martin Griss and Ivar Jacobson, and several colleagues at HP and Objectory. We are combining the systematic reuse concepts of process, organization and kits, with the OO modeling and methods of(More)
