Defining and Validating Measures for Conceptual Data Model Quality

  title={Defining and Validating Measures for Conceptual Data Model Quality},
  author={Marcela Genero and Geert Poels and Mario Piattini},
For assessing conceptual data model quality it is useful to have quantitative and objective measurement instruments. The scarcity of such measurement instruments leaded us to define a set of measures for structural complexity, an internal quality attribute of conceptual data models, with the idea that it is related to the external quality of such models. In order to gather empirical evidence that the proposed measures could be early quality indicators of conceptual data models, we carried out a… CONTINUE READING
