Frequently used quality attributes for evaluating a system design

Before you start evaluating any model wrt its pros and cons, let me tell you some parameters on which you are supposed to comment.

You should evaluate any design wrt the following parameters.

  • Usability
  • Performance
  • Flexibility
  • Security
  • Accountability

The reasons for evaluationg these designs with the above mentioned parameters shall be discussed in a seperate chapter.

Also to quantitatively evaluate each of these parameters, you can use a scale to rate your views.

  • Good
  • Bad
  • Worse

In the next section we will evaluate the design using domain entities using the above mentioned parameters.
