Property-Based Software Engineering Measurement

  title={Property-Based Software Engineering Measurement},
  author={Lionel C. Briand and Sandro Morasca and Victor R. Basili},
  journal={IEEE Trans. Software Eng.},
Little theory exists in the field of software system measurement. Concepts such as complexity, coupling, cohesion or even size are very often subject to interpretation and appear to have inconsistent definitions in the literature. As a consequence, there is little guidance provided to the analyst attempting to define proper measures for specific problems. Many controversies in the literature are simply misunderstandings and stem from the fact that some people talk about different measurement… CONTINUE READING
