Abstract

This paper portrays software reuse as analogical mapping and rule development.In order to explore the impacts of inconsistent representationS on the cognitive process of software resuse,it manipulates the intermal representations of source and target problems and their program solutions.The experimental design for this study has two factors:1)the degree of structural consistency between the source problem and the target problem,and2) the degree of structural consistency between the source problem and the source solution.A full-scale protocol analysis reveals that these two factors influence the cognitive process of mapping between source and target,the process of developing rules,and the interrelation between analogical mapping and rule development.The paper concludes by discussing the implications of these results for software reuse.
