Defining metric thresholds for software product lines

Gustavo Vale, Danyllo Albuquerque, Eduardo Figueiredo, Alessandro Garcia
2015 Proceedings of the 19th International Conference on Software Product Line - SPLC '15  
A software product line (SPL) is a set of software systems that share a common and variable set of features. Software metrics provide basic means to quantify several modularity aspects of SPLs.  ...  We assess to what extent these methods derive appropriate values for four metrics used in product-line engineering.  ...  Metric Thresholds Side by Side Table 1 . Software Product Lines Benchmarks 1 Id SPL Tech.  ...
