Component based development offers many potential benefits, viz. software reuse, reduced time-to-market, inter- operability, ease of quality certification etc. However, it is not always that benefits derived from addition of components from a component repository are more than the costs involved in developing the module from scratch. This work evaluates various software quality models and suggests recommendations for enhancing software quality in COTS (component off-the-shelf) based software products by designing software quality metrics that would help in managing and enhancing quality in component-based software development.
