One of the activities where companies invest the most today is software evolution and maintenance; in spite of this big effort, companies do not have a reliable and agreed model to evaluate the quality of maintenance activity and to monitor how their software evolves as a result of maintenance. Although the ISO/IEC SQuaRE quality model is well- known in industry and covers also maintenance issues, it is too general and too abstract to be directly applied; moreover some of the metrics that the model suggests are very difficult and expensive to apply. The purpose of this paper is to specialise the ISO/IEC SQuaRE quality model in order to make it easier to use for a company.
