Lavleen Kambow, Daljeet Singh . Visualizing the Software Metrics of Statechart diagram using Program Slicing. International Journal of Applied Information Systems. 2, 9 ( June 2012), 15-18. DOI=10.5120/ijais12-450408
This paper proposes a new technique for the measurement of ACOS and ASSOS of the Statechart diagram using Program Slicing. The Statechart diagram contains the dynamic information of the Object-Oriented system. In this research work, State Dependency Graph (STDG) is generated from the Criteria table of the Statechart diagram. Then, the STDG is dynamically sliced, which results easy understandability of statechart diagram for an effective communication among the developers. These slices can be further used to measure accurate ACOS represents cohesion & ASSOS represents coupling, from values of COS and SS respectively. The objective of this new approach is to measure the accurate results of ACOS and ASSOS in contrast to the previous research.
