Refactoring is applied to the software artifacts so as to improve its internal structure, while preserving its
external behavior. Refactoring is an uncertain process and it is difficult to give some units for
measurement. The amount to refactoring that can be applied to the source-code depends upon the skills of
the developer. In this research, we have perceived refactoring as a quantified object on an ordinal scale of
measurement. We have a proposed a model for determining the degree of refactoring opportunities in the
given source-code. The model is applied on the three projects collected from a company. UML diagrams
are drawn for each project. The values for source-code metrics, that are useful in determining the quality of
code, are calculated for each UML of the projects. Based on the nominal values of metrics, each relevant
UML is represented on an ordinal scale. A machine learning tool, weka, is used to analyze the dataset,
imported in the form of arff file, produced by the three projects.
