Software metric extension of the Enterprisemodelling technique
Abstract (Summary)Abstract The objective of this project is to make it possible to evaluate real-time operating systems. A requirement specification for real-time operating system is represented with the help of the Enterprise Modelling technique. What is needed is to measure if the requirements, defined in the requirement specification, can be fulfilled by existing real-time operating system.This dissertation is concerned with if it is possible to extend the Enterprise Modelling (EM) technique with software metrics. An emphasis is put on integrating an existing metrics paradigm with the EM technique.The study shows that a paradigm, called Goal Question Metrics (GQM) can be used to extending the EM technique with software metrics.Other results are that the extended EM model is good to identify metrics, because of its goal-oriented technique, with strong coupling to the enterprise, and actors and activities related to the product. This can be used to validate that relevant metrics are chosen, based on the need of components related to the enterprise.
