Standardized code quality benchmarking for improving software maintainability

  title={Standardized code quality benchmarking for improving software maintainability},
  author={Robert Baggen and Jos{\'e} Pedro Correia and Katrin Schill and Joost Visser},
  journal={Software Quality Journal},
We provide an overview of the approach developed by the Software Improvement Group for code analysis and quality consulting focused on software maintainability. The approach uses a standardized measurement model based on the ISO/IEC 9126 definition of maintainability and source code metrics. Procedural standardization in evaluation projects further enhances the comparability of results. Individual assessments are stored in a repository that allows any system at hand to be compared to the… CONTINUE READING
