Metrics for Analysis and Improvement of Software Architectures

MAISA is a research and development project aiming at developing methods for the measurement of software quality at the design level. The metrics are computed from the system's architectural description, predicting the quality attributes of the system derived from it. Most notably, size and performance metrics are addressed. The performance analysis is refined by analysis at code level.

The work in the MAISA project started on the first of September 1999 and ended at the end of December 2001.

The project has been funded by TEKES and the following industry partners:

The work continues in the UML++ project in cooperation with University of Tampere and Tampere University of Technology. This project is funded by the Academy of Finland.
