There have been many studies involving quantitative measurement of software projects whose objects have been to quantify either software products or software development process. Our goal in this paper is to identify important factors that quantify software design process by which we mean phase of software development that spans the specification and coding. Through two experiments using student subjects we have identified the quality of specification and programmer effort as important factors.
