How complex is this package?
The overall measure of Package Complexity is based on the number of different element and connector types in this package.
It is a simple indication of the level of ‘connectedness’ of the meta-model of the package, the ratio of connector types to element types:
A linear ‘string’ of elements and connectors: gives a ratio just less than 1
A package with ‘simple’ connections between, say, 4 elements, with, say, 4 connections: gives a ratio of 1
A complex package, where everything connects to everything, is a hard model to maintain, so it’s complexity is shown as >1
To discover why your package has this complexity score, explore the meta-model diagram.
A very low complexity figure may suggest that the package has missing relationships. A high figure, that this package may need to be simplified.
