State diagrams commonly used for describing dynamic behavior of systems or objects can have various forms that specify the same behavior. Highly understandable state diagrams are important for efficient and clear communication between developers. Measurement of understandability of state diagrams is the first step to obtain highly understandable ones. Unfortunately, there is little research on metrics for evaluating state diagram's understandability. In this paper, we propose cohesion and… CONTINUE READING
