Strategies for Reuse

Josef Nedstam and I have finally had our paper Evolving Strategies for Software Architecture and Reuse accepted for publication, in the Journal Software Process: Improvement and Practice. It’s been through a couple of iterations/submissions, but from go-to-whoa it will have taken about 3 years to see this published from when we first wrote it. It’s a nice story, mostly based on data from Josef’s PhD work, about how the best form of architecture-driven reuse for an organization depends on its business situation, and how they both can change over time. It’s an extension/response to Jan Bosch’s view of increasing levels of maturity for reuse (product line development).
