In software engineering, reuse of artifacts is considered as silver-bullet for project development especially in component based development technique. The benefits of reuse are neither linear nor exact they are estimated with the help of metrics and models. To measure benefits of software reuse is a challenging task since they are multi dimensional mainly earlier time-to-market, better quality, increased productivity etc. and of two dimensional characteristics-quantitative and qualitative. Reuse is highly potential in correlated domains due to similar requirements.
