15Achieving a high level of reuse is arguably the hardest goal to accomplish in developing a software system. The reuse of code and designs has been proclaimed as a major benefit of using object-oriented technologies. However, the return on this investment is not automatic. To leverage the reuse possibilities that object-oriented [or conventional] programming provides requires forethought and planning. There are many techniques to realize reuse at every level of the system development process. .

They are important for that reason. David Hooker [Hoo96] has proposed seven principles that focus on software engineering practice as a whole. They are reproduced in the following paragraphs:13 The First Principle: The Reason It All Exists Before beginning a software project, be sure the software has a business purpose and that users perceive value in it. A software system exists for one reason: to provide value to its users. All decisions should be made with this in mind. ” If the answer is “no,” don’t do it.

A software project is a complicated journey, and the planning activity creates a “map” that helps guide the team as it makes the journey. The map—called a software project plan—defines the software engineering work by describing the technical tasks to be conducted, the risks that are likely, the resources that will be required, the work products to be produced, and a work schedule. uote: “Einstein argued that there must be a simplified explanation of nature, because God is not capricious or arbitrary.
