Let's update our summary table with some of the new techniques we've covered:

Maintainability Performance Data sharing Ease of use
Subroutines  
Called Programs  
Copybooks
Internal Procedures
Procedure Copybooks
External Procedures (bind by copy)
External Procedures (bind by reference)
Bind By Reference (with binding directories)
Bind By Reference w/Binding Directories & Binder Source

We can see that using bind by reference (service programs) and taking advantage of binding directories & binder source gives us the best of all worlds.  This is however, the most complicated architecture, and may not be suitable in all situations.  It may require significant system rewrites - but it may also be worth the effort.
