Description of Research
Dr. Monroe's present research involves object-oriented methods as they support reuse. He is investigating how object-oriented methods support reuse.

One of the alleged benefits of object-oriented technology is its superior technical support for reuse of software components. The aim of Dr. Monroe's research is to examine the effect that the goal of reuse has on the software development life cycle. The approach he uses is to highlight issues pertaining to reuse that must be considered in each phase of the life cycle.

In the first phase of his research, Dr. Monroe classifies the reuse issues relevant to the object-oriented approach. This is done both from the technology and management viewpoints. In the next phase, he explores the features of object-oriented technology that assist reuse and some of the limitations. The last phase of his research addresses distinct development contexts with respect to reuse, developing components for reuse and system development with reuse.
