This document can be used as an aid to realistically plan projects whose philosophical basis is intended to be the STARS vision of megaprogramming. The document contains what is known as the Reuse Strategy Model (RSM), which consists of a method for gauging the current state of reuse practice with concurrent identification of goals that support transition to a state closer to the STARS vision. The notion of assessment used in RSM is to characterize what reuse is practiced and supported, not how efficiently or effectively reuse is practiced. Rather it assesses the extent of a transition to domain specific, reuse based development both with respect to engineering and management practice and the infrastructure supporting those practices.
RSM is intended to be used in support of project planning. The use of RSM assumes that the project's domain(s) of interest is known, the organization(s) involved is known, and the project has been characterized relative to the STARS Conceptual Framework for Reuse Processes (CFRP). This characterization means that the high level goal of the project can be identified as primarily an enactment of one of the CFRP's reuse engineering process families (asset creation, asset management, asset utilization) or as an enactment of the reuse management process categories (reuse planning, domain selection, infrastructure development, technology exploration, etc.). The method provides an assessment of what the current reuse practice is, identifies a set of possible goals that should be then winnowed to be realistic in terms of resources and project duration, and provides conceptual notions of what could be used as measures to gauge progress against those project goals.
