Date of Defense 2006-06-30 Availability unrestricted AbstractManaging the effects of changing requirements remains one of the greatest challenges of
enterprise software development. The iterative and incremental model provides an expedient
framework for addressing such concerns. This thesis proposes a set of metrics – Mutation
Index, Component Set, Dependency Index – and a methodology to measure the effects
of requirement changes from one iteration to another. To evaluate the effectiveness of the
proposed metrics, sample calculations and results from a real life case study are included.
Future directions of our work based on this mechanism are also discussed.
