The Case Studies

The Quality metrics of OQuaRE

This model includes the metrics attached to the elements of the quality model. In this section we present the values in the SQuaRE scale for all characteristics and subcharacteristics that have been automatically calculated for SCIUNITS /SWEET 2.0 Scientific Units Ontology ) Quantities-Units-Dimensions-Values (QUDV_SI), OpenMath (OPENMATH), OBO units of measurement (UNITPATO), Ontology of units of Measure and related concepts (WURVO C).

Numerical values for all characteristics and subcharacteristics can be found in the next links
