Software metrics helps in estimating the quality of software. To meet the customer’s demands, there is a competence in the software industries for the best quality product. Some metrics can be applied in the early stages of product development that helps in eliminating the complexity at later stages. This paper helps in predicting software quality with the help of object oriented metrics
