Abstract

In the current era of information technology, everyone has to deal with software products. It is crucial to gauge the quality of software products from its various aspects. Always there is need of standard and specific methods to measure any parameter in scientific manner. As quality of software is concerned, using quality metrics is a standard method which can be preferred over its (simpler) counterparts. This method enables to estimate various characteristics of a software system like cost, complexity, volume, size, function points, quality etc. these characteristics determines the quality. The aim of this study is to enhance the quality of the software developed in localized environment by getting these metrics implemented on different software products developed by the students' final year projects. Students has been divided into two groups. Conventional and controlled groups. The controlled group is bounded to follow the quality metrics during each phase of Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) with expected quality enhancement. Results obtained by experimentation show that implementation of software quality metrics improves the quality of software product. Therefore, it is highly recommended to use the appropriate software quality metrics during all phases of SDLC.
