Abstract

The authors pose several conjectures derived from the current view of software metrics and analyze these conjectures by applying source-code metrics to two medium-size software systems. The analysis determines the robustness of several metrics, the information conveyed by them, and how that information could be used for software management purposes. One important use observed is the discriminant power of the metrics, when software components are grouped together into sets having common characteristics, to statistically distinguish between the groups.
