The quality element of a design class is important as it has a substantial listed influence on overall required quality of the software. The complexity and lengthy codes of program severely affect several quality measures, especially efficiency of the final delivered software. This paper does an appropriate review on efficiency of object oriented software, and suggests some relevant information about class design level efficiency. Program efficiency is an important factor to software quality. Moreover, if software efficiency analysis has been done in the early steps of the software creation process then it assures as a criterion to software quality. This article proposes a comprehensive research idea for estimation of the efficiency index. Subsequently, it does an extremely methodical review on design efficiency of software. After that, a design metric based efficiency estimation model at the design time has been proposed by creating the link between design properties of the program and efficiency criteria. Furthermore, the correlation is mapped among all with the help of statistical values for selected design properties and efficiency criteria. In addition, efficiency estimation model is empirically validated with try-out data.
