Abstract : The objective of the Systems Analysis Quality Metrics program is the development of model quality metrics for the IDEF0 methodology in particular and for structured analysis methodologies in general. The previously existing IDEF0 model quality metrics are reviewed, critiqued and expanded. Additional metrics, not based on previous writings, are identified. This produces a useful model quality metrics baseline. Formalizations are recommended for specific IDEF0 elements which are not well enough defined to support metrics development. Techniques for the combination of metric primitives into whole diagram and whole model metrics are introduced. IDEF0, Function Model, Formalizations.
