Better, faster, and cheaper: what is better software?
Background: Defects are related to failures and they do not have much power for indicating a higher quality or a better system above the baseline that the end-users expect. Nevertheless, defect counts are commonly used as measures to capture the quality of a system. Further, the statistical association between internal design metrics and quality in terms of defects has been shown in previous work. Aims: Our goal is to conduct an initial data analysis for our longer-term goal of investigating whether there exist a similar relationship between the internal design characteristics of a system and quality perception of end-users. Method: We carry out an exploratory case study in robotic soccer domain. We propose a quality measure derived from the performances in the robotic soccer competitions. Then, we compare the design characteristics and quality levels of two cases. In particular, we compare the two different implementations of a system in terms of their design metrics and their overal...
