Measuring maintainability near the beginning in the software development life cycle, particularly at design phase, may help the designers to integrate required improvement and corrections for improving maintainability of the developed software. This paper developed a multivariate regression model "Maintainability estimation model for object-oriented design" at design phase in software development process. Developed model measures the maintainability of object oriented design in respect of extendibility and flexibility. Though, in order to quantify object oriented design's extendibility and flexibility, the paper required to develop two more models.
