Game Development Reference
Aside from efficiency or performance, complexity of the implementation relative
to the task performed can also be considered. If an application or component is
mired in complexity, it might not be the most efficient implementation of a solution,
even if its performance is as good as or better than another less complex solution.
The efficiency metric involves studying several important variables in order to
determine whether the solution, even when meeting business objectives, is an effi-
In this chapter, I discussed what software quality measurements and metrics are,
and why they are important. Also discussed were some development models and
calculation methods used to produce and analyze high-quality software.
