Transitive Coupling (TC) and Fault Proneness (FP) in Object Oriented Systems: A New Methodology
Demand for Quality Software has undergone with rapid growth during the last few years. This is leading to an increase in the development of metrics for measuring the properties of software such as Coupling, Cohesion or Inheritance that can be used in early quality assessments. Quality Models that explore the relationship between these properties and quality attributes such as fault proneness, maintainability, effort or productivity are needed to use these metrics effectively. The empirical studies carried out in recent literature concluded that none of the existing metrics particularly coupling and coherence was fever or not effective in ranking the reusability of object oriented components.
