Many companies are still asking how to assess and predict the maintenance cost of their software. Measures of software maintenance cost can be taken either late or early in the development process. Early measures of software maintenance cost are beneficial because they can help in allocating project resources efficiently, predicting the effort of maintenance tasks and controlling the maintenance process. This paper describes a tool for computing early metrics from UML class diagrams based on the Web Application Extension (WAE) for UML. A case study is used to show the usefulness and effectiveness of the tool.
