Abstract:

The Reuse-Driven Software Processes Guidebook describes the Synthesis family of reuse-driven software development processes. In particular, it prescribes the practice for two example members of this family, illustrating the different stages of reuse capability that can be addressed by this family. Development organizations choose the process that matches their reuse goals. Synthesis is a comprehensive, business-area-level solution to problems of software productivity and quality in the building of systems to meet diverse and changing needs. Synthesis is most appropriate for development organizations that produce many similar systems or single unique systems with highly-volatile requirements during system development and maintenance. Synthesis is a systematic approach to software development founded on the belief that the resources of a business-area organization should -be managed not only to meet the immediate needs of customers, but also as an investment in future capability. This guidebook serves as a detailed guide to the practice of Synthesis, addressing all activities and work products related to the production of software, in support of the needs and objectives of a business-area organization and its customers.
