A Survey of Reuse Economic Models

Lombard Hill Group Report No: AP-12001

This report baselines reuse economic modeling by surveying and comparing seventeen economic models and presenting conclusions and recommendations for further research. Each model is described in its original terminology and translated using a common lexicon. The analyses indicate a great deal of commonality among the set of models. While this may indicate that researchers are arriving at similar models independently, it may also suggest that we should direct our efforts at forging new ground in reuse economics. Five areas for further research in reuse economics are recommended, and general guidelines for helping organizations decide on a suitable economic model are discussed. The 'Reuse Cost Calculator' spreadsheet that is now being bundled with the report was developed by the Data and Analysis Center for Software (DACS) as part of their Gold Practices Initiative. The DACS is a DoD-sponsored Information Analysis Center (IAC) administratively managed by the Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC). The DACS is technically managed by the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) in Rome, NY and operated by ITT Industries, Advanced Engineering and Sciences.
