Measurement concepts define how quality attributes are measured. They provide an intermediate level of abstraction to adapt the metrics to various situations (programming language used, accessibility of data sources, etc.) without modifying the structure of the quality model. Note that measurement concepts have been renamed to questions in the end of 2014 to better match user concepts.

The complete list of questions is auto-generated. Please refer to the dashboard documentation page:

A concept has the following fields:

  • name (e.g. code size)
  • mnemo (e.g. CODE_SIZE)
  • description (e.g. The overall size of the code.)
  • composition (e.g. SLOC)
  • optionnally a question (e.g. how big is the software product?)
