Abstract: In Component Based Software Development (CBSD), applications are built from existing components either by assembling or replacing software parts. Reusing components may lead to faster software development and subsequently reduce cost and provide higher product quality. In CBSD, software component models define what components are and how they compose. However, no research has been done to assess the quality of software component models, to assess the characteristics of software component design. This paper proposed a software component quality model specifically to answer the question what characteristics make good component. A Systematic Literature Review (SLR) has been conducted by defining a robust protocol that combines automatic searches from different sources. The finding of the SLR has contributed to the development of quality model for CBSD, i.e. a proposed component quality model with metrics which is specific to software component design.
