This report formulates criteria and procedures for the evaluation of reusable software engineering assets. The task is set in the context of the ASSET reuse library which has the mission of helping to stimulate a national industry based on software reuse. As such, the facility must become a national authority on the subject of reuse, an advocate for the industry, and a self-sustaining business operation.
The document defines four levels of quality: 1) Documented, 2) Audited, 3) Validated, and 4) Certified. It also divides evaluation of assets into a hierarchical taxonomy, with inheritance. It then proceeds to identify the criteria by which different types of assets must be evaluated in order to meet each level of quality. The process of evaluation is defined and a sample evaluation is included.
