Empirical Studies of Quality Models in Object-Oriented Systems
Measuring structural design properties of a software system, such as coupling, cohesion, or complexity, is a promising approach towards early quality assessments. To use such measurement effectively, quality models are needed that quantitatively describe how these internal structural properties relate to relevant external system qualities such as reliability or maintainability. This chapter has for objective to summarize, in a structured and detailed fashion, the empirical results that have been reported so far with modeling external system quality based on structural design properties in object-oriented systems. We perform a critical review of existing work in order to identify lessons learned regarding the way these studies are performed and reported. Constructive guidelines are also provided to facilitate the work of future studies, thus facilitating the development of an empirical body of knowledge. Table of Contents
