Satisficing the Conflicting Software Qualities of Maintainability and Performance at the Source Code Level

Bill Andreopoulos

The major contributions of our work include adopting the NFR framework to represent and analyze two software qualities that often conflict with each other: maintainability and performance. We identified and described many heuristics that can be implemented in a system's source code to achieve either quality. We implemented some of the heuristics in two medium-sized software systems and then collected measurements to determine the effect of the heuristics on maintainability and performance. A general methodology is described for evaluating and selecting the heuristics that will improve a system’s software quality the most. The results of our research were also encoded in XML files, and made available on the World Wide Web for use by software developers
