Addressing Analyzability in Terms of Object Oriented Design Complexity

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 249)


This paper defines analyzability in terms of design complexity. A model has been developed to evaluate analyzability in terms of object oriented design complexity. The evolved model has also been implemented and validated with realistic data. An experimental data shows the impact of design complexity on analyzability of software in accordance with its anticipated influence and importance.
