Abstract

Facing shrinking defense budgets and the growing demand for software to control sophisticated and complex weapons systems, the Department of Defense (DoD) has identified software reuse as one element of a solution to the current ‘software crisis.’ The DoD commitment to avoid costs, reduce risks, and improve quality and reliability of developed and maintained software is exemplified by Congressional authorization of United States Air Force creation of a program to facilitate achievement of these objectives. This program, A Comprehensive Approach to Reusable Defense Software (CARDS) Program, is designed to explore issues pertinent to the institution of software reuse, establish software reuse processes, support specific application domains, and perform technology transfer.

This paper provides an overview of the work being performed by the CARDS Program to advance the techniques and technology of process-driven, domain-specific, architecture-centric, library-assisted software reuse. The objectives of the CARDS training effort are explained, existing CARDS courses are discussed, and future training plans are outlined.
