The effects of software design complexity on defects : a study in open-source systems

Awang Abu Bakar, Normi Sham


The aim of this thesis is to investigate whether there is a general correlation between post-delivery defects and system design complexity by studying measures relating to Data, Structural and Procedural complexity in object-oriented systems and determining their effect on post delivery defects. A further aim is to determine whether, during the detailed design phase, measured Data Complexity can estimate measured Procedural Complexity and Class Size for the implemented system. This research is...[Show more]
