Introduction to software reuse
In computer science and software engineering , reusability is the use of existing assets in some form within the software product development process ; these assets are products and by-products of the software development life cycle and include code, software components, test suites, designs and documentation. The opposite concept of reusability is leverage , which modifies existing assets as needed to meet specific system requirements. Because reuse implies the creation of a separately maintained version of the assets [ clarification needed ] , it is preferred over leverage. Subroutines or functions are the simplest form of reuse. A chunk of code is regularly organized using modules or namespaces into layers. Proponents claim that objects and software components offer a more advanced form of reusability, although it has been tough to objectively measure and define levels or scores of reusability. The ability to reuse relies in an essential way on the ability to build larger things from smaller parts, and being able to identify commonalities among those parts.
Software Reuse: Advances in Software Reusability
This handbook provides recommendations, methods and procedures that can be used for the selection and reuse of existing software in space software systems. This handbook is applicable to all types of software of a space system, including the space segment, the launch service segment and the ground segment software including EGSEs whenever existing software is intended to be reused within them. NOTE: Special emphasis is put on guidance for the reuse of COTS software often available as-is and for which no code and documentation are often available. Any organization with the business objective of systematic reuse may need to implement the organizational reuse processes presented in . These processes will support the identification of reusable software products and components within selected reuse domains, their classification, storage and systematic reuse within the projects of that organization, etc. In addition, this handbook provides guidelines to be used for the selection and analysis of tools for the development, verification and validation of the operational software.

Efforts to Reuse Software Assets
Show all documents Empirical study of the effects of software reuse in videogames on game and project performance these games have increased tremendously. As technology advances and consumers demand the latest features, games will be required to continue to grow in terms of size and their complexity.
