Metrics are paramount in every engineering discipline. Software engineering, however, is not considered a classical engineering activity for several reasons. In general, if a software system is seen to deliver the required functionality, only few people if any care about the internals. Moreover, defining, understanding and applying software metrics often looks like an over ...more

The bulk of the book shows how to evaluate the design and identify design disharmonies by using detection strategies. The authors also present techniques of how to prioritize and recover from these design flaws. The theoretical a
