Metrics vs. Matrix

The words Metrics and Matrix cause confusion, as they sound similar. So, what’s the difference between them?


Metric is a measurement.

Product Quality Metrics describe the characteristics (i.e. Size, complexity, performance Quality level of the product). For example:

  • Mean time to failure
  • Defect density
  • Customer Problems
  • Customer Satisfaction
  • Defect Removal Efficiency


Matrix is a data representation and data collection mechanism. Then we use collected data to derive metrics. For example:

  • Requirements Traceability Matrix
  • Functional Traceability Matrix
  • Test Matrix

Retail - Cheating

I shopped at Music World / Books & Beyond (Kukatpally, Hyderabad) today. I paid by card, and the cashier swaped Rs. 473 without even asking. I never expected this kind of cheating practiced by RPG group.

This is a common practice in Hyderabad. All the retail stores are into such practice. Even when you pay by card, they dont bother to charge the right amount. Beware.. .you are being cheated.
