A realistic estimate of the field failure rate of software is essential in order to decide when to release the software while maintaining an appropriate balance between reliability, time-to-market and development cost. Typically, software reliability models are applied to system test data with the hope of obtaining an estimate of the software failure rate that will be observed in the field. Unfortunately, test environments are usually quite different from field environments. In this paper, we… CONTINUE READING
