Abstract

: This work aims at building a knowledge-based system for quality assurance of objects issued from different phases of the software life cycle. Firstly, some gaps detected in the widely-used software quality tree are invoked. A set of extensions is then proposed . The obtained model, or the Characteristics Multigraph of Software Quality, is intended to be used as the main framework for the system rule base. 1 Introduction In order to represent and handle knowledge about the quality of software compo- nents, the tree-like quality representation proposed by B. Boehm [4] and extended by J. McCall [6] constitutes an important starting model. Nevertheless, since we get concerned with an exhaustive representation of quality characteristics, th
