Objectives and Approach

The REBOOT project studies, develops, evaluates, and disseminates advanced methodologies for reuse-driven and object-oriented software development with the emphasis on planned reuse.

REBOOT tackles the following problem areas:

In order to develop successful methodologies, the project simultaneously addresses solutions in all the areas mentioned above. REBOOT starts from state-of-the-art knowledge and has close relationships with other reuse projects or committees, especially in the U.S. Top-down and bottom-up approaches are combined by concurrent work on real-world applications in various domains and theoretical studies. These applications provide feedback that enables the incremental refinement and assessment of the proposed methodology and tools.

REBOOT is also cooperating with NSR, a Norwegian "reuse" consortium, consisting of three software houses that will also evaluate the preliminary REBOOT offer.

Progress and Results

The main current REBOOT deliverables are:

By means of real-world applications, the REBOOT team has also acquired a practical know-how that is now used to introduce reuse in other internal and external organisations.

The objectives of the final year are to:

Exploitation

Most partners are designing internal plans for software reuse, through the REBOOT methodology. A comprehensive set of seminars for the management is being set up by the consortium as a vehicle for the promotion of reuse in target organisations.
