Abstract. The growing interest for software reuse by organizations makes adoption and evaluation of reuse an essential activity. Many organizations struggle in their attempt to select appropriate reuse practices (methods, techniques and tools support) in their processes. In this way, this thesis proposes a reuse reference model to aid the introduction of software reuse practices based on the organization software reuse capa- bility. The reference model is composed of a maturity levels, its process areas, goals, key practices and work products.
