University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för data- och informationsteknik

Abstract: Model-based software development plays a key rolein modern day industries and the size and complexity of it isincreasing constantly. However far too little attention has beenpaid to maintainability quality characteristics of model-basedsoftware. In this paper we provide the state of art analysisthroughout a systematic literature review and present the existingmaintainability metrics of executable models. In addition, asurvey is conducted to shed light on practitioners perspectiveon maintainability metrics in industry. Metrics compositions andtheir dependencies are visualized on a diagram. The relationbetween the metrics and the quality characteristics they try toresolve, is also presented as a part of our result. We concludethat more research is needed on metrics of this field, becausemodel-based software
