Using software metrics is one of the ways of evaluating and improving reusability of software components. Among other reusability aspects of a component, the complexity/understandability aspect is crucial and needs to be assessed and managed. This reusability aspect can be assessed by measuring one of two overlapping reusability attributes: complexity and understandability. The authors closely examine these two reusability attributes in this paper, and issues that must be considered when making a choice between them are presented thereto.
