This book provides a number of specific metrics that apply to object-oriented software projects. The metrics are based on measurements and advice drawn from a number of actual projects that have successfully used object technology to deliver products.
The book considers both project completion metrics and design metrics. It includes common, Smalltalk only, and C++ only applications for each category. The book provides lists and discussion for each metric: name; meaning; factors affecting the metric and project results with examples thresholds; and suggested actions.
