Abstract

Whilst some traditional software metrics are applicable to object-oriented technology, these need to be supplemented by additional metrics directed at the particular features of object-oriented software. An investigation is described in which, having identified a set of software metrics, relating to object-oriented software development, the aim is to apply these metrics using Quality Function Deployment (QFD), supported by Case Based Reasoning (CBR), in different software cases, thus incrementally building up, over time in a case library, a collection of different cases, relating to various functional characteristics of developed software. It is believed that CBR may be effective in establishing the relationships between the criteria and the metrics in new software development c
