In general, software reuse is defined as "the process of creating software systems from existing software". Software reuse does more than improve productivity in software development; it also increases the quality of the resulting software systems because it uses validated artifacts. However, requirements reuse lacks tool support. Techniques for retrieving, adapting, and consolidating reusable requirements have received relatively little attention in comparison with all the work on software reuse. The work in this area has not made sufficient progress to date to determine whether such approaches may be practical and may scale up. Our REUSER project seeks to address this tool gap by seamlessly assisting analysts as they reuse UML (Unified Modeling Language) artifacts. In particular, it automates artifact retrieval.
