Reuse of products, processes and other knowledge will be the key to enable the software industry to achieve the dramatic improvement in productivity and quality required to satisfy anticipated growing demands. Although experience shows that certain kinds of reuse can be successful, general success has been elusive. A software life-cycle technology that allows comprehensive reuse of all kinds of software-related experience could provide the means of achieving the desired order-of-magnitude improvements. In this paper, we introduce a comprehensive framework of models, model-based characterisation schemes, and support mechanisms for better understanding, evaluating, planning and supporting all aspects of reuse.
