Software Reliability

Abstract

In this report we give an overview of Software Reliability metrics, models and analysis tools. Additionally, we briefly touch on the issue of software cost estimation.

We describe a number of commonly used software reliability growth models and show how combinations of models can be used to improve accuracy. Also, we present a range of statistical tools used to evaluate the accuracy of the predictions made by a growth model. We then compare the growth models by applying them to three sets of data. For one of the sets of data we also apply a simple software cost model to estimate the optimum time for release of a software product.
