An Approach to Find Out at Which Maintainability Metric, Software Maintenance Cost is Less

In this paper, the authors introduce a new process to obtain the maintenance cost by taking release-level model and retrieve values from previous projects and find out software maintenance costs of current project. They come across three parameters in which the main issue is to find software maintenance cost lies with maintainability metric. After deriving the values, they arrive understandability, modifiability and testability parameters, which finally create a way to find the software maintenance cost for current project. Also they arrived six cases in order to find out at which least maintenance cost is less and obtained results.
