Presents a process model for software measurement methods. The proposed model details the distinct steps from the design of a measurement method, to its application, then to the analysis of its measurement results, and lastly to the exploitation of these results in subsequent models, such as in quality and estimation models. From this model, a validation framework can be designed for analyzing whether or not a software metric could qualify as a measurement method. The model can also be used for analyzing the coverage of the validation methods proposed for software metrics
