Software Reuse is a business solution to the increasing demand for software over supply. However there remains little investment in software reuse despite the availability of return-on-investment models to show the cost-benefits, organisational models for undertaking the task and the appropriate technology to do so. In addition investment in reuse which transcends commercial barriers is practically non-existent. This position paper argues that global Software Reuse in the 21st Century will not be fully exploited without breaking down the traditional customer-supplier relationship and adopting long-term business relationships and supply chain management.
