The Use of Software Complexity Metrics in Software Maintenance
March 1987 (vol. 13 no. 3)
pp. 335-343
D. Kafura, Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute
This paper reports on a modest study which relates seven different software complexity metrics to the experience of maintenance activities performed on a medium size software system. Three different versions of the system that evolved over a period of three years were analyzed in this study. A major revision of the system, while still in its design phase, was also analyzed.
Index Terms:
software metrics, Complexity metrics, design analysis, maintenance
