ASSET_A_413: Reuse Economics Spreadsheet Model The Reuse Economics Spreadsheet Model (RESSM) provides support for performing economic analyses of software reuse strategies. The model can be used to analyze the potential impact of various reuse strategies on the overall cost of software development, and to examine the effect that varying different reuse parameters has on the total software development cost. The spreadsheet is implemented in Microsoft Excel, version 3.0, and runs on both the Macintosh and MS-DOS versions of Excel. The spreadsheet provides models for up-front reuse program investment and incremental reuse program investment. Results may be displayed as a spreadsheet or graphically. This distribution consists of: RESSM Excel Spreadsheets, MS-DOS RESSM User Guide, PostScript
