  Abstract:   Nowadays, software systems become very large and complex applications. They are the result of a process evolution, undergoing frequent modi cations that a ffect their design quality. Therefore, repeated assessment of the systems design should be made throughout the development lifecycle. This activity is time-consuming, because of design complexity and therefore, methods and techniques being needed to evaluate the system design in an automatic manner. Software metrics are an alternative solution, a means for quantifying those aspects considered important for the assessment. In this article we propose a case-study for object oriented design (OOD) assessment using software metrics. Our goal is to identify those design entities aff ected by "God Class" design flaw, and to identify possible refactorings that could improve the system design and to evaluate the impact of the applied refactoring on software quality.
