About these proceedings


Based on papers accepted for presentation at the 1996 Workshop on Systematic Reuse: Issues in Initiating and Improving a Reuse Program, Liverpool, UK, this volume provides a comprehensive introduction to the effective management of software reuse. It examines a number of central issues such as: the critical success factors for reuse; the amount of investment required and the expected payback period; the type of training needed; tools; and the impact of reuse on organisation structure. There is a strong emphasis on the industrial application of systematic reuse - an area which is currently expanding at a rapid rate - illustrated by the experiences of leading international companies such as IBM, Hitachi Europe, and AT&T. Overall this volume sets out comprehensive guidelines on the introduction and maintenance of a reuse program. It will provide an invaluable reference book for software development practitioners, systems analysts and architects, and development managers.
