dc.description.abstract The goal of this research is to validate the methodology used while investigating metrics directed verification of Unified Modeling Language (UML) based designs. This document is organized into five distinct sections. The topics discussed include an introduction to the UML, a discussion of available software metrics, a tutorial regarding the nature of design metrics, a discussion of available UML metrics, and the empirical study results. The empirical study presents detailed information regarding how UML class diagrams can be mapped to design metrics, a discussion on how the data was collected and verified, the results obtained during this study, what conclusions were drawn from the data, and recommendations for future research topics. Preliminary findings indicate that a correlation does exist between the external design complexity measure and the UML class diagrams.
