The existing complexity metrics being used are based on code and cognitive metrics. This paper therefore proposed a complexity metric using software requirement based specification. The proposed approach identified complexity of software immediately after freezing the requirement in Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) process. In order to develop a metric, this research took the IEEE Software Requirement Specification (SRS) document as a basis. Proper analysis of each and every component of SRS document of complexity metrics was considered.
