Software Metrics for Visual Programming Languages

by Isabel Hungar (Volkswagen AG)



In the development of complex programs, software metrics can help to identify potentially problematic components or issues with the software architecture.

In the automotive domain, often Visual Programming Languages are used. Since such languages are not as often employed as traditional languages like C, there has only been limited work on specific programming guidelines and corresponding metrics for them.

This talk presents an approach to fill this gap by transferring established software metrics to the domain of visual programming languages, staying consistent with programming guidelines.
