Making the Reuse Business Work
October 1997 (vol. 30 no. 10)
pp. 36-42

In this excerpt of Software Reuse: Architecture Process and Organization for Business Success (Addison-Wesley, 1997), the authors describe the benefits of reuse and debunk the misconceptions that stand in the way of achieving reuse gains. Jacobson is the inventor of the Objectory method and a well-known pioneer in the use of object technology. Jonsson is further developing Objectory, with a focus on reuse. Griss has been involved in software reuse for 23 years, the last 14 at Hewlett-Packard.

Their book describes how a reuse architecture can dramatically improve development costs and development time. They contend that reuse technology is ready now: Companies that are prepared to implement a systematic reuse program will "coin money" in the future.
