Abstract

As software is developed for many applications and software defects have caused serious problem sin those applications, the concern of software quality evaluation increases rapidly. Although there has been many efforts for establishing standards for software evaluation, such as ISO/IEC 9126, they provide only a framework for defining quality characteristics and evaluation process. They, however, do not provide practical guidances for deriving resonable weight value criteria for software evaluation. This paper presents a method to draw quantitative weight values from evaluator's subjective data in the process of software evaluation as observing the ISO/IEC 9126 standard. To eliminate the evaluators' subjectiveness and the uncertainty of weight value during evaluation, the Dempster-Shafer (D-S) theory is adopted and utilized. In this paper, the D-S theory is supplemented with an improved merge rule to reduce the bias of weight value when they are merged with other evaluator's weight value. The proposed merge rule has been tested and proved with actual evaluation data.
