This paper presents the relation between software metrics and maintainability and the metrics which characterise the ease of the maintenance process when applied to a specific product. The criteria of maintainability and the methods through which these criteria are understood and interpreted by software programmers are analyzed. Surveys and examples that show whether software metrics and maintainability are correlated are also presented. In this paper, software metrics which have been proposed for maintainability were used and applied to program languages. The aim of this paper is to determine up to what point and in which cases can the authors rely on software metrics in order to define the maintainability of a software product.
