    Public access to data members (PAD)
    - This metric indicates the number of classes (or methods) that can access another classes attributes, a violation of encapsulation.

    - High values of PAD lead to the potential for side effects among classes.

    - Tests must be designed to ensure that such side effects are uncovered.
