Abstract: While more and more enterprises are making use of mobile technology
to enable field workers, in many cases a mobile solution is built from the
ground up for use by a single company. This is costly, both in terms of
development and support resources. By achieving higher reuse of software
components these costs can come down. This paper develops a methodology for
identifying re-usable components; and using this methodology several re-usable
components are listed. As a by-product of this research we develop a taxonomy
of mobile applications. We suggest the new term field office applications
to describe applications used by mobile workers.
