For many years the software engineering community has been attacking the software reliability
problem on two fronts. First via design methodologies, languages and tools as a precheck on
quality and second by measuring the quality of produced software as a postcheck. This research
attempts to unify the approach to creating reliable software by providing the ability to measure the
quality of a design prior to its implementation. Also presented is a comparison of a graphical and
a textual design language in an effort to support cognitive science research findings that the human
brain works more effectively in images than in text.
