Comparative Assessment of Software Quality Classification Techniques: An Empirical Case Study

  title={Comparative Assessment of Software Quality Classification Techniques: An Empirical Case Study},
  author={Taghi M. Khoshgoftaar and Naeem Seliya},
  journal={Empirical Software Engineering},
Software metrics-based quality classification models predict a software module as either fault-prone (fp) or not fault-prone (nfp). Timely application of such models can assist in directing quality improvement efforts to modules that are likely to be fp during operations, thereby cost-effectively utilizing the software quality testing and enhancement resources. Since several classification techniques are available, a relative comparative study of some commonly used classification techniques can… CONTINUE READING
