Abstract

A major criticism of metrics for object-oriented
systems design has been their lack in
generating meaningful feedback information.
This paper proposes a data interpretation
method based on visualisation of results
obtained from the method redefinition metric
set. The method encompasses an "alarmer"
technique for identifying suspected design
problems occurring under certain conditions.
We demonstrate how the method provides a
mechanism for metric result interpretation,
design problem identification and design
decision deduction.
