In this paper, the authors present a new complexity metric for Object-Oriented (OO) design that helps the researchers, practitioners, and designers to measure the system complexity of a software system. Theoretical validation of new complexity metric has been done using Weyuker's properties. This paper also presents a better correlation of the new proposal comparatively with some existing complexity metrics to show better prediction of complexity (reusability, understandability, design complex). A statistical analysis of two open source system (JFreeChart, JEdit) has been evaluated.
