The Software Design Metrics tool for the UML

SDMetrics is a strong supporter of education and research in the area of software product quality engineering. SDMetrics' flexibility to define custom metrics makes it an ideal tool for researchers investigating new design measurement approaches and metrics they come up with.

Time allowing, I provide free support with the technical implementation of custom metrics tailored to the specific research questions at hand. Feel free to let me know about your academic projects or be included on our list of academic users.

Over the years, SDMetrics has contributed to PhD theses, Master's theses, research and student projects all over the globe:
