STABILITY EVALUATION MODEL FOR OBJECT ORIENTED SOFTWARE

Nidhi Goyal, Reena Srivastava

Abstract


Software stability is a significant factor of software development. Stability is one of the most significant software quality indicator its
correct assessment directs to the prospects of facilitating as well as improving software maintenance process. Emphasis on stability in early
phase of software development cycle leads to significant improvement of stability and decline in development and maintenance costs. The
assessment of stability using design properties is more relevant and its justification indicates the valid influence of functional and structural
information of object oriented design and development.
Regardless of the fact stability is vital and extremely noteworthy aspect for system development cycle it is poorly managed. This paper focuses
the need and importance of evaluating stability at design phase and tries to establish a significant correlation between stabil ity and design
properties. Taking into consideration a model, has been developed for stability evaluation of object oriented design and development by
establishing multiple linear regressions. Finally the developed model has been validated by means of experimental tryout.
