Property-based software engineering measurement by Lionel C Briand( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "Little theory exists in the field of software system measurement. Concepts such as complexity, coupling, cohesion or even size are very often subject to interpretation and appear to have inconsistent definitions in the literature. As a consequence, there is little guidance provided to the analyst attempting to define proper measures for specific problems. Many controversies in the literature are simply misunderstandings and stem from the fact that some people talk about different measurement concepts under the same label (complexity is the most common case). There is a need to define unambiguously the most important measurement concepts used in the measurement of software products. One way of doing so is to define precisely what mathematical properties characterize these concepts, regardless of the specific software artifacts to which these concepts are applied. Such a mathematical framework could generate a consensus in the software engineering community and provide a means for better communication among researchers, better guidelines for analysts, and better evaluation methods for commercial static analyzers for practitioners. In this paper, we propose a mathematical framework which is generic, because it is not specific to any particular software artifact, and rigorous, because it is based on precise mathematical concepts. This framework defines several important measurement concepts (size, length, complexity, cohesion, coupling). It does not intend to be complete or fully objective; other frameworks could have been proposed and different choices could have been made. However, we believe that the formalisms and properties we introduce are convenient and intuitive. In addition, we have reviewed the literature on this subject and compared it with our work. This framework contributes constructively to a firmer theoretical ground of software measurement."
Defining and validating high-level design metrics by Lionel C Briand( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "The availability of significant metrics in the early phases of the software development process allows for a better management of the later phases, and a more effective quality assessment when software quality can still be easily affected by preventive or corrective actions. In this paper, we introduce and compare four strategies for defining high- level design metrics. They are based on different sets of assumptions (about the design process) related to a well defined experimental goal they help reach: identify error-prone software parts. In particular, we define ratio-scale metrics for cohesion and coupling that show interesting properties. An in-depth experimental validation, conducted on large scale projects demonstrates the usefulness of the metrics we define."
Measuring and assessing maintainability at the end of high level design by Lionel C Briand( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "Software architecture appears to be one of the main factors affecting software maintainability. Therefore, in order to be able to predict and assess maintainability early in the development process we need to be able to measure the high-level design characteristics that affect the change process. To this end, we propose a measurement approach, which is based on precise assumptions derived from the change process, which is based on Object-Oriented Design principles and is partially language independent. We define metrics for cohesion, coupling, and visibility in order to capture the difficulty of isolating, understanding, designing and validating changes."

A pattern recognition approach for software engineering data analysis by Lionel C Briand( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

OSR provides mechanisms for building models for prediction that provide accuracy estimates, risk management evaluation and quality assesssment. The construction of the models can be automated and evolve with new data over time to provide an evolutionary learning approach (the Improvement Paradigm) to software modeling and measurement. Experimental results are provided to demonstrate the effectiveness of the approach for the particular application of cost estimation modeling."
A goal-driven definition process for product metrics based on properties by Lionel C Briand( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "Defining product metrics requires a rigorous and disciplined approach because useful metrics depend, to a very large extent, on one's goals and assumptions about the studied software process. Unlike in more mature scientific fields, it appears difficult to devise a 'universal' set of metrics in software engineering. In this paper, we propose a metric definition process which is based on both the experimental goals of measurement, expressed via the GQM paradigm, and the study of the metrics' mathematical properties. This process integrates several research contributions from the literature into a consistent and practical process. This process is intended to be a starting point for discussion about a widely accepted, practical product metric definition process in the software engineering community."
A Comprehensive evaluation of capture-recapture models for estimating software defect content by Lionel C Briand( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An important requirement to control the inspection of software artefacts is to be able to decide objectively whether the inspection can stop or should continue in order to achieve a suitable level of artefact quality. A prediction of the number of remaining defects in an inspected artefact can be used for decision-making. Several studies in software engineering have considered capture-recapture models, originally proposed by biologists to estimate animal populations, to make a prediction. This study focusses on traditional inspections and it estimates, based on actual inspection data, the degree of accuracy of relevant, state-of-the-art capture-recapture models as they have been proposed in biology and for which statistical estimators exist. To assess their robustness, the impact of the number of inspectors & the number of actual defects on the estimators' accuracy is examined. Plausible reasons why some models perform better than others in a large number of conditions are discussed. Based on the analyses presented, a decision procedure for selecting an optimal model is recommended. Furthermore, the study attempts to calibrate the prediction models based on their relative error, as previously computed on other inspections. Theoretical limitations to this approach are identified, which are then confirmed by the data

Characterizing and assessing a large-scale software maintenance organization( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "One important component of a software process is the organizational context in which the process is enacted. This component is often missing or incomplete in current process modeling approaches. One technique for modeling this perspective is the Actor-Dependency (AD) Model. This paper reports on a case study which used this approach to analyze and assess a large software maintenance organization. Our goal was to identify the approach's strengths and weaknesses while providing practical recommendations for improvement. The AD model was found to be very useful in capturing the important properties of the organizational context of the maintenance process, and aided in the understanding of the flaws found in this process. However, a number of opportunities for extending and improving the AD model were identified. Among others, there is a need to incorporate quantitative information to complement the qualitative model."
