A number of software cost estimation methods have been presented in literature over the past decades. Analogy based estimation (ABE), which is essentially a case based reasoning (CBR)(More)
Software metrics play an important role in measuring the quality of software. It is desirable to predict the quality of software as early as possible, and hence metrics have to be collected early as well. This raises a number of questions that has not been fully answered. In this paper we discuss, prediction of fault content and try to answer what type of(More)
In software reliability modeling, the parameters of the model are typically estimated from the test data of the corresponding component. However, the widely used point estimators are subject to random variations in the data, resulting in uncertainties in these estimated parameters. Ignoring the parameter uncertainty can result in grossly underestimating the(More)
Optimal scheduling of parallel applications on distributed computing systems represented by directed acyclic graph (DAG) is NPcomplete in the general case. List scheduling is a very popular heuristic method for DAG-based scheduling. However, it is more suited to homogenous distributed computing systems. This paper presents an iterative list scheduling(More)
