Component-Based Software Development (CBSD) promises to reduce development cost and time by enabling rapid development of highly flexible and easily maintainable software modules. CBSD is based on the idea that software systems can be developed by selecting and integrating appropriate components which have already been developed and then assembling them to obtain the functionality desired in target application. Improper assembly of software components will lead to more number of defects, increase in complexity, development time, less reliability, etc. So, correct assembly of software components is an important issue. The aim of this paper is to develop a systematic procedure to assemble software components to build high quality software. The proposed algorithm is based on dependency chart in which the interaction between the components is considered as the major criteria. The proposed algorithm is applied in a component-based Enterprise Resource Planning software system to discuss the implications of the proposed algorithm.
