Abstract: In the past, reuse programs have assumed that technical solutions would overcome barriers to effective reuse. However, recent retrospectives of reuse programs show that organizational factors can greatly affect the implementation of a reuse program. Reuse is often approached as an independent collection of tools and techniques, and the technical and non-technical aspects are commonly examined separately. This research proposes that all the factors affecting reuse are interdependent and therefore should be studied simultaneously. It is therefore very important that all elements and relationships are identified and documented in a structured, clear manner. The concept of value nets, based on game theory has been identified as a means of capturing the different factors involved in the reuse driven software process. The value net is a useful model for viewing multiple interactions from various perspectives. The value net of the reuse-driven software development process is a map of the various factors and players identified in the reuse process, and the interactions occurring between the players. Hence the reuse value net helps in identifying the important factors that can provide the points of leverage to make the reuse process more efficient.
