Abstract


The growing importance of commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) software packages seems a better hope towards the timely required software development. The ongoing recently popularity of COTS products and component technology in software development is rigorous sign towards maturing the discipline. Software being an economic product faces various issues. The development of software from the COTS products needs some economic transaction process between the COTS buyer (Integrator) and the seller (Vendor). This paper proposes COTS Broker to settle various core issues with the support of mathematical model in between the integrator and the vendor as well as to satisfy COTS buyers’ needs in the latest global competitive software marketplace. We have presented the solutions of various existing COTS issues  through  COTSBr (COTS Broker) as  well as  focused  the  need  of  offshore  supply  of COTS products through Broker to facilitate the integrator for the rapid development of software, which is existed market need to save the development time.
