MACIAS RIVERO, Yaidelyn; GUZMAN SANCHEZ, María Victoria  y  MARTINEZ SUAREZ, Yamila. Evaluation model for the software using metric indicators to science and technology surveillance. ACIMED [online]. 2009, vol.20, n.6, pp.125-140. ISSN 1024-9435.

Science and technology surveillance allow that company to be informed on worldwide changes so that important decisions could be taken. Since data to analyze are continuously growing. Science and Technology Surveillance services need to have software to make this easier. In addition, there are several automated programs that have one or another function in the cycle of surveillance or that comply one or another requirement in the organizations. Considering this, it is necessary to have tools to characterize and assess both used and potentially useful programs for this kind of services. In this paper, a proposal of a model for the assessment of programs is presented. Only programs with the possibility of applying metric indicators to information analysis and used in science and technology surveillance were included. The model, based on ISO-9126, includes a group of indicators that provides analysts with elements to know the program and to determine whether it meets their analysis needs. The model was applied to a group of software commonly used in surveillance, as a result the strength of these tools in the analysis process of Science and Technology Watch services was demonstrated.
