I've found in my experience, which admittedly is mostly Big Aerospace, that there is a huge bias among management towards reuse rather than refactoring. They get all wet over the concept of earned value and avoid thinking about the real costs down the road. It comes out of a different funding bucket, after all.

I've also seen it in smaller ventures. It's way too enticing to reuse because there is the comforting, often misguided notion that what was used elsewhere will fit like a glove in the new application. Maybe it will, maybe it won't but "all you have to do is ...", therefore saving you all of those development costs.

And let's face it, if we're honest, we have all done something similar because of some perfect storm of converging priorities, events and time. Because we're going to circle back around and fix it; yeah, right after the whatever.

Sometimes (if I may quote Adm Akbar) It's a trap!
