Currently, in order to obtain high quality software products it is necessary to carry out a good software processes management in which measurement is a fundamental factor. Due to the great diversity of entities involved in software measurement, a consistent framework to integrate the different entities in the measurement process is required. In this paper the Software Measurement Framework (SMF) is presented, which supports the measurement of any type of software entity through the metamodels which depict them. In this framework, any software entity in any domain could be measured with a common Software Measurement metamodel and by means of QVT transformations. This work explains the three fundamental elements of the Software Measurement Framework (conceptual architecture, technological aspects and method). These elements have all been adapted to the MDE paradigm and to MDA technology, taking advantage of their benefits within the field of software measurement. Furthermore an example which illustrates the framework's application to a concrete domain is furthermore shown.
