Software Reuse at Hewlett-Packard

Griss, Martin L.



Abstract: In this position paper, several software reuse related activities at Hewlett-Packard are described, focusing on those in which the author has been involved over the past 6 years. Recent activities include an investigation (started in November 1989) of the opportunities for a systematic, HP Corporate Software Reuse program which lead to a new HP Corporate Engineering project to define and execute such a program. Planned work involves a combination of consulting, training, methods development, the writing of a reuse handbook, and several pilot projects. Also related are two research projects at HP Laboratories, one involving the development of a prototype hypertext-based reuse library management system (Kiosk), and the other (FAB) exploring component-based software construction using application development frameworks for distributed applications.
