In order to assess software quality by software metrics, usually, thresholds for metric values are needed. A common problem is to define reasonable threshold values. One possible solution is to use a benchmarking approach: the threshold value for a metric is calculated based on the metric values of a set of systems, which are called benchmarking base.
