Keywords:software evolution  CLOC  quantifying software 

Software developers are often asked to measure different software characteristics. Decisions are based on facts and figures, which are generated through precise measurements.

To better control and manage software development, computer scientists work to develop better software measurements. These measures can assist in choosing development environments, clarifying and focusing goals, and in ascertaining the cost of design decisions.

The factors involved with source code are numerous and varied. They include the degree of expertise required to develop the code and the size, complexity, reliability and performance of the code.

Although software's complex nature makes reliance on a single measurement method impractical, there are a myriad of good techniques for quantifying software. The current techniques each provide absolute values for certain characteristics of a static piece of software.
