Quantitative models are a widely accepted means to predict and to control software quality ond development productivity. If these models are updated to reflect the positive effect of new processes or new technologies, and if the same models are reused by several projects, this will make the advantage of the new technology visible and will create pressure to adopt it. Thus, reuse of models becomes a vehicle for technology transfer.
