Toward the Design Quality Evaluation of Object-Oriented Software Systems

  title={Toward the Design Quality Evaluation of Object-Oriented Software Systems},
  author={Fernando Brito e Abreu and Miguel Goul{\~a}o and Rita Esteves and Rua Alves Redol},
This paper presents some advances towards the quantitative evaluation of design attributes of object-oriented software systems. We believe that these attributes can express the quality of internal structure, thus being strongly correlated with quality characteristics like analyzability, changeability, stability and testabilility, which are important to software developers and maintainers. An OO design metrics set is reviewed, along with its rationale. An experiment for collection and analysis… CONTINUE READING
