Recently, software quality evaluation based on ISO/IEC 9126 and ISO/IEC 14598 has been used widely. However, these standards for software quality don't provide practical guidelines to apply the quality model and the evaluation process to real projects. Hence, this paper presents a quantitative software quality evaluation model for the artifacts of the component based development (CBD) methodology which is developed by the Ministry of National Defense of the Republic of Korea, Particularly, our model adopts the weights of quality characteristics which are obtained by carefully selected questionnaires for the stakeholders and analytic hierarchical process (AHP) technique. We also present the evaluation process using checklists and the result of a trial evaluation for validation of our model. As a result, we believe that the proposed model helps to acquire high quality software.
