Software Quality Measurement: Validation of a Foundational Approach (Final Report, Year Two)
This report discusses the second year findings of a proposed four year investigation effort that focuses on the assessment and prediction of software quality. The research exploits fundamental linkages among software engineering Objectives, Principles, and Attributes (the OPA framework). Process and documentation quality indicators (DQI) are presented relative to the OPA framework with an elaboration on their individual role in assessing and predicting software quality. The development of a document quality analyzer is discussed, with a particular emphasis being placed on the selected subset of DQI measures that it provides.
