    Abstract/Description

    A major criticism of metrics for object-oriented
    systems design has been their lack in
    generating meaningful feedback information.
    This paper proposes a data interpretation
    method based on visualisation of results
    obtained from the method redefinition metric
    set. The method encompasses an "alarmer"
    technique for identifying suspected design
    problems occurring under certain conditions.
    We demonstrate how the method provides a
    mechanism for metric result interpretation,
    design problem identification and design
    decision deduction.
