A methodology for integrating maintainability into large-scale software using software metrics
Maintainability must be integrated into software as early in the
development life cycle as possible to avoid overwhelming maintenance costs at
later stages. This research describes a methodology which assists in the
development of maintainable systems and does so without disrupting industry
standard development techniques. The process uses software metrics and
iterative enhancement concepts to reduce the complexity of high-level
language code, making it less error-prone and more maintainable. The
experiment uses large-scale system software from a major software producer.
