Reusability

A material’s ability to be reused or salvaged in whole form without undergoing a reprocessing or remanufacturing process. Refers to how many times a material may be reused.

reusability

The capability of using all or the greater part of the same programming code or system design in another application. Very few information systems are designed and written entirely from scratch. Existing procedures are widely used, although often with a lot of modification, and applications are built upon frameworks from the software companies and routines that programmers have written in the past. See reusable IP.
