    What would be simple ways for measuring Orthogonality, Completeness and Usability of a Taxonomy? How could we make these metrics as objective as possible and less dependent on expert judgement?

    Please describe your situation in more detail – right now this sounds like a text book question. If it isn’t a textbook question it is too broad for any of us to answer. How do you measure these qualities today in your process?

    Thanks

    The problem is to design metrics for a taxonomy we have created. Presently, Orthogonality (Extent of overlap between different branches) is measured by having an expert, judge and quantify the number of overlaps and expressing the same in as a ratio to the total no. branches.

    Are you looking to change how you measure the process’s performance (i.e. 5 overlaps and 10 total branhces) or how you grade the process’s performance based upon the taxonomy you’ve created (i.e. is 5/10 good, bad, or neither)?
