  • Introduction

    Case Report Measuring the Source Code describes the planning, specification and realization as well as the results of the measurements of the available and improved/updated source code. The measurement results also comprise information which of the improved SW items can be reused or redeveloped in the course of a forward engineering measure that follows the reverse engineering measure.

    This product exists for the System to be processed. If the software to be processed is an individual SW Unit, then it exists on the SW Unit level.

    Document Structure

    1. General Information

    See schema 1. General Information.

    2. Measuring Plan

    2.1. Measured Objects

    The objects to be measured are listed.

    2.2. Tasks and Responsibilities

    The responsibilities of each organizational unit participating in the measuring process are briefly described. It is necessary to differentiate between cooperating, advising, or controlling participation. The individual measurements are allocated to persons mentioning their names.

    2.3. Time Schedule

    The deadlines for the preparation and realization of the measurements of the above mentioned measured objects will be listed.

    2.4. Resources

    This describes which environment (hardware, software DP resources, etc.) are required for the measurements.

    3. Measurement Specification

    This describes which measurement methods are used during the realization.

    4. Job Instructions

    4.1. Requirements

    It is described how the requirements for the measurement were defined and how the required initial state is established for the measurement (preparation of the measurement environment, data volumes, available memory, etc.).

    4.2. Configuration

    It is described how the measured object is to be configured and to be installed and how it is connected with the measured environment.

    4.3. Realization

    This describes the individual steps to be executed during the measurement itself.

    4.4. Handling the Results

    This describes which measurement results must be documented in which way (paper, electronic media, or others).

    4.5. Evaluation of Results

    This describes how and under which aspects and conditions the measurement results will be evaluated.

    5. Measuring the Available Source Code

    for each measured object m:

    5.m Identification of the Measurement

    5.m.1 Measured Object

    The measured object is uniquely defined.

    5.m.2 Tasks during the Realization

    This contains information about the person in charge of the measurement and place and time of the measurement.

    5.m.3 Results

    The measurement results are stored.

    6. Measuring the Improved Source Code

    for each measured object m:

    6.m Identification of the Measurement

    6.m.1 Measured Object

    The measured object is uniquely defined.

    6.m.2 Information about the Realization

    This contains information about the person in charge as well as place, date and time of the measurements.

    6.m.3 Results

    The results of the measurements are stored.

    7. Evaluation

    The results of the measurements of each existing and improved source code are listed and compared in tables.

    8. Reusable Software Items

    This illustrates which SW items are suitable, based on the corresponding measurement results, for being reused in the forward engineering measures realized after the reverse engineering measures. All those SW items that are not listed here should be newly developed during forward engineering measures.
