Software metrics are required to measure quality in terms of software performance and reliability related characteristics like dependencies, coupling and cohesion etc. It provides a way to measure the progress of code during development and having direct relationship with cost and time incurred in the software design and development at their later stages. These major issues must be checked and informed early in the development stage, so that reliability of any software product could be ensured for any large and complex software project. Object oriented software metrics directly focuses on the issues like complexity, reliability and robustness of the software developed using object oriented design methodologies. It reflects the time, cost and effort that would be incurred in development at later stage. While the software in its development stage, it is desirable that the complexity levels at every stage should be minimized to make the end product more reliable and manageable. Object oriented metrics provides all parameters through which one can estimate the complexities and quality related issues of any software at their early stages of development. In this paper, authors have studied three object oriented metrics namely MOOD Metrics, CK Metrics, and QMOOD Metrics and given a case study to show, how these metrics are useful in determining the quality of any software designed by using object oriented paradigm.
