Maintainability is the quality factor including all those software characteristics designed to make the product easier to maintain towards the end of achieving greater productivity in the maintenance stage  ...  Various research works indicate that the maintenance stage consumes most of the resources needed for a software project. Thus, this stage must be especially considered in productivity studies.  ...  We take the COCOMO (Boehm, 1981) as the basis of our model, in which we incorporate indices measuring the maintainability of the product.  ...

Experimental investigation of the quality and productivity of software factories based development

Andrej Krajnc, Marjan Hericko, Crt Gerlec, Uros Goljat, Gregor Polancic
2012 Computer Science and Information Systems  
In this paper, the quality and productivity benefits of the SF approach were examined and evaluated with an experiment involving two treatments -the traditional and the SF approach.  ...  Quality software is easy to maintain and reduces the cost of software development. The Software Factories (SF) approach is one of the approaches to provide such benefits.  ...  One of the goals was to measure the lines of code (LOC) metric in each period of development. They also measured the efficiency of the product line in the case of developing products.  ...
