Abstract: -Software reuse demands that existing components must be readily incorporated into new products. To be able to reuse software components, it is necessary to locate the component that can be reused. Locating components, or even realizing that they exist, can be quite difficult in a large collection of components. These components need to be suitably classified and stored in a repository to enable efficient retrieval. Four schemes have been previously employed, Free Text, Enumerated, Attribute Value and Faceted classification. But we try to develop only with two schemes which are attribute value scheme and faceted value scheme. This paper titled “Implementation of attribute value and faceted value classification for constructing reuse repository” is aimed to develop a classification scheme which uses an attribute value and faceted value of existing classification that can be used by people to retrieve the reusable components. This approach serves as an effective means to categorize components and to retrieve the relevant components efficiently to improve retrieval efficiency.
