The Influence of Software Complexity on the Maintenance Effort: Case Study on Software Developed within Educational Process
Radulescu, Iulian Ionut
Journal of Applied Quantitative Methods, v1 n1 p43-50 Fall 2006
Software complexity is the most important software quality attribute and a very useful instrument in the study of software quality. Is one of the factors that affect most of the software quality characteristics, including maintainability. It is very important to quantity this influence and identify the means to keep it under control; by using quantitative methods for evaluating and analyzing it, this is possible. On the other hand, it can help in evaluating the students during education process. The complexity of the projects developed during the specialized courses, which have similar requirements, or even the same requirements, reveals students programming abilities, his know ledges about programming technique and help identifies the ones that try to cheat, by copying. (Contains 1 table, 1 figure and 2 footnotes.)
