Abstract:

Recognizing that software will not he reused unless its quality can be accurately and effectively determined, Rome Laboratory has initiated a research project in reusable software asset certification. Certification, as used in this document, refers to a process in which inspection, analysis, and testing techniques are used to achieve assurance of th quality of reusable assets. This process might be performed by a reuse repository, by a renser, by an independent organization providing such services, or by a development organization. This effort provides a certification framework that defines methods and tools that can be applied to detect defects and ultimately avoid rework. The framework focuses on certifying individual components i.e., smaller pieces of a system for a particular quality or group of qualities. These individual components can then be used as system building blocks.
