Review on Software and Hardware Reliability and Metrics

How software metrics can improve the reliability and quality of the software product can be improved by applying software metrics at each of these development phases is discussed.

Evaluating the Predicting Capabilities of Software Reliability Model

The paper concludes the optimal model, which is to unify the neural network with analytical model so as to improve the prediction efficiency of analytical models.

Forecasting the Reliability of Software via Neural Networks

The proposed work merges the software reliability model and the neural network model to conclude three models comprising the capability to judge the accuracy of the number of failures prediction.

Reliability Assessment of Component-Based Software System Using Fuzzy-AHP

The proposed model considers the factors external to a component-based software that affects its reliability and shows that by considering these factors a more efficient model for estimating reliability in CBSE systems is proposed.

Software Reliability Assessment Using High-Order Markov Chains

The method of software reliability prediction that takes into account dependencies between software components is described, which uses higher-order Markov processes and consists of definition of each component’s failure rate, probability of transitions between components, the optimal order of Markov process and computation of the whole software system reliability itself.

Software Failures Forecasting by Holt - Winters, ARIMA and NNAR Methods

This paper describes the results of software failures prediction using regression, smoothing and neural networks and the best forecasting accuracy was reached using the NNAR method for noncumulative 14-days' time-series.

A New Approach to the Quantitative Measurement of Software Reliability

A new approach is proposed to quantitatively measure the flexibility of the software developed using SDA Flex&Rel, thereby making precise informal claims on the flexibility improvement.



Fault-Tolerant Systems

This book is the first book on fault tolerance design with a systems approach and offers comprehensive coverage of both hardware and software fault tolerance, as well as information and time redundancy.

Software reliability Research

A Review and Evaluation of Software Science

The primary purpose of this paper is to review Halstead's theory of software science and to evaluate the major studies and experiments relating to that theory.

Challenges in Software Reliability and Testing

An overview of software reliability modelling and testing is given and a need for models which can be more readily applied in practice is pointed out.

Software reliability growth models dominated by randomness

The Jelinski-Moranda and Geometric models for software reliability failed the consistency test which was proposed and a remedy is indicated for this lack of robustness, namely replication of data.

Software Reliability Modeling

The use of stochastic techniques is justified, and the various probability models that have been proposed, along with any associated statistical estimation and inference procedures, are described.

Metrics and Models in Software Quality Engineering

Stephen H. Kan is responsible for IBM Rochester's software quality strategy and plans, quality assessment, software measurements, and statistical analysis.

The Estimation of Parameters of the Hypergeometric Distribution and Its Application to the Software Reliability Growth Model

It is demonstrated that the least-squares sum method is the best one among those tried, and can be applied to real test/ debug data for estimating the number of faults still resident in a program after test/debugging.

Time-Dependent Error-Detection Rate Model for Software Reliability and Other Performance Measures

The failure process is analyzed to develop a suitable meanvalue function for the NHPP to create a stochastic model for the software failure phenomenon based on a nonhomogeneous Poisson process.
