An Approach for Analysing the Propagation of Data Errors in Software

  title={An Approach for Analysing the Propagation of Data Errors in Software},
  author={Martin Hiller and Arshad Jhumka and Neeraj Suri},
We present a novel approach for analysing the propagation of data errors in software. The concept of error permeability is introduced as a basic measure upon which we define a set of related measures. These measures guide us in the process of analysing the vulnerability of software to find the modules that are most likely exposed to propagating errors. Based on the analysis performed with error permeability and its related measures, we describe how to select suitable locations for error… CONTINUE READING
