Article Abstract

[This abstract is based on the authors' abstract.] The ISO 9126 standard for assessing the quality of software products distinguishes between internal and external quality and quality in use. An evaluation method for internal software quality (EMISQ) based on the closely-related ISO 14598 standard is developed for the expert-centered assessment of internal software quality. EMISQ provides a framework that is supported by metric values and static code analysis tools. Evaluators require tool support tailored to their specific needs to perform efficient code-quality assessments. To meet these requirements, the Software Product Quality Reporter has been developed to support the EMISQ method.
