Reuse is the idea of leveraging previously developed capabilities into a new project for the purposes of improving project characteristics (i.e. cost, schedule, risk). While reuse is a fairly well-known concept in domains such as software and product development, almost no research has been conducted on reuse in the systems engineering domain. This paper provides six general principles of reuse, identifies success factors for reuse, and summarizes some key challenges and opportunities for future research in the area of reuse in systems engineering.
