6 Design Measurement

In this section, we describe the theory behind design measurement - what are the structural properties of a design and why can design metrics be considered quality indicators. We also discuss how design measurement data can be interpreted, how it should not be interpreted, and provide pointers to some useful data analysis techniques in the context of software design measurement.
