The existing cohesion metrics for classes do not consider the characteristics of dependent instance variables that are commonly used in a class and, thus, do not properly reflect the cohesiveness of the class. This paper presents an approach for improving the cohesion metrics by considering the characteristics of the dependent instance variables in an object-oriented program.
Cohesion, object-oriented design, metrics/measurement.
