Summary:
Software reuse has been looked upon in recent years as a promising mechanism for achieving increased levels of software quality and productivity within an organization. A form of software reuse which has been gaining in popularity is the use of design patterns. Design patterns are a higher level of abstraction than source code and are proving to be a valuable resource for both software developers and new hires within a company. This thesis develops the idea of applying design patterns to the Computer Aided Design (CAD) software development environment. The benefits and costs associated with implementing a software reuse strategy are explained and the reasoning for developing design patterns is given. Design patterns are then described in detail and a potential method for applying design patterns within the CAD environment is demonstrated through the development of a CAD design pattern catalog.
