Find out where the technical debt lives in your codebase by contacting us at Silverthread.
Developed by systems engineers and researchers at MIT and Harvard, Silverthread can provide you with a snapshot of your code. You’ll get insight into bugs and spaghetti code “furballs” quickly and easily. You’ll receive an analysis of your code with a Design Structure Matrix (DSM) — a visual representation that will allow you to see problem areas.
DSMs are tools for analyzing the interconnectivity patterns inside a technical architecture. They allow developers to:
- Identify parts, their connections, and the functions that those parts perform.
- Document the various physical and functional interconnections in a DSM.
- Rank those interconnections based on their desirability or undesirability.
- Cluster or “chunk” the connections or interactions into different possible groupings or “modularizations” based on the strength of interactions between parts.
