This paper describes a case study that used and evaluated key aspects of a method developed for systematic reusable off-the-shelf software selection. The paper presents a summary of the common problems in reusable off-the-shelf software selection, describes the method used and provides details about the case study carried out. The case study indicated that the evaluated aspects of the method are feasible, improve the quality and efficiency of reusable software selection and the decision makers have more confidence in the evaluation results, compared to traditional approaches. Furthermore, the case study also showed that the choice of evaluation data analysis method can influence the evaluation results
