Abstract : Software metrics (or measurements) which predict software quality were extended from previous research to include two additional quality factors: interoperability and reusability. Aspects of requirements, design, and source language programs which could affect these two quality factors were identified and metrics to measure them were defined. These aspects were identified by theoretical analysis, literature search, interviews with project managers and software engineers, and personal experience. A Guidebook for Software Quality Measurement was produced to assist in setting quality goals, applying metrics and making quality assessments. (Author)
