Implementing Critical Success Factors in software reuse

by M. Wasmund
Software reuse is one of several technologies that can improve quality and effectiveness of software development. The introduction of a reuse infrastructure within an existing organization and the associated modification of employee behavior and processes is a complex interdisciplinary task. The structuring and monitoring of several coordinated activities is required in order to be successful. This paper describes a practical application of the Critical Success Factors method on reuse technology insertion into the software development process. The Critical Success Factors method has proved to be a useful means for the introduction of software reuse concepts. Application of the method and results are discussed in detail, concluding with lessons learned and recommendations for similar efforts.
