A Case Study in Assessing the Maintainability of Large, Software-Intensive Systems


Maintenance of a computer-based system accounts for a large proportion of the total system cost. However, no well-established techniques exist for assessing the maintainability of such a system. This paper presents a case study in assessing the maintainability of a large, software intensive system. The techniques we used are described, and their strengths and weaknesses discussed.
