Software measurement is considered to be an efficient means to monitor the quality of software projects, predict cost of maintenance, assess reusability of components, provide prediction of faults in similar projects, and contribute to improvement of the software development process. This chapter surveys software metrics literature with particular focus on object-oriented metrics, and metrics for measuring code complexity. Furthermore, we provide a critical view of software metrics and their usability.
