A comparative study of attribute selection techniques for CBR-based software quality classification models.

  • Computer Science.


To achieve high reliability in software-based systems, software metrics-based quality classification models have been explored in the literature. However, the collection of software metrics may be a hard and long process, and some metrics may not be helpful or may be harmful to the classification models, deteriorating the models' accuracies. Hence, methodologies have been developed to select the most significant metrics in order to build accurate and efficient classification models. Case-Based Reasoning is the classification technique used in this thesis. Since it does not provide any metric selection mechanisms, some metric selection techniques were studied. In the context of CBR, this thesis presents a comparative evaluation of metric selection methodologies, for raw and discretized data. Three attribute selection techniques have been studied: Kolmogorov-Smirnov Two-Sample Test, Kruskal-Wallis Test, and Information Gain. These techniques resulted in classification models that are useful for software quality improvement.
