COSMIC Case Study

Vogelezang, F., Symons, C.R., Lesterhuis, A.

This case study is an example of how the COSMIC method should be applied to measure a small web application. The case study has been assembled by members of the COSMIC working group of NESMA, based on real specifications, for the purpose of sharing our experience with the COSMIC community.
This application, although very small, contains a lot of discussion points about how the COSMIC method should be applied correctly. It is a real application, which could be encountered by any measurement professional. Because of its compact, yet complicated nature we decided to make a case study out of this application. We hope that it helps the COSMIC community to understand a number of aspects of the method better and assists in ensuring consistent interpretation of the COSMIC principles.
