Software Quality Assessment Tool Based on Meta-Models
In the software industry it is indisputably essential to control the quality of produced software systems in terms of capabilities for easy maintenance, reuse, portability and others in order to ensure reliability in the software development. But it is also clear that it is very difficult to achieve such a control through a 'manual' management of quality. There are a number of approaches for software quality assurance based typically on software quality models (e.g. ISO 9126, McCall's, Boehm's and Dormey's models) and software quality metrics (e.g. LOC, McCabe's cyclomatic complexity, Halstead's metric, object-oriented metrics) for assessment of various quality characteristics.
