Abstract : Information Systems executives within the Department of Defense (DoD) activities are being challenged to develop innovative ways in which information technology can contribute to the streamlining of DoD organizations. Software Reuse is a key strategy in developing information systems that will meet the future needs of DoD organizations. This thesis examines the concepts, implementation strategies, and issues relating to the creation of a clearinghouse to facilitate and promote software reuse. Specifically it studies the Defense Software Repository System (DSRS), a DoD version of the Reusable Ada Products for Information Systems Development (RAPID) effort.
