Methods and problems of software reliability estimation

  title={Methods and problems of software reliability estimation},
  author={Ilkka Karanta},
There are many probabilistic and statistical approaches to modelling software reliability. Software reliability estimates are used for various purposes: during development, to make the release decision; and after the software has been taken into use, as part of system reliability estimation, as a basis of maintenance recommendations, and further improvement, or a basis of the recommendation to discontinue the use of the software. This report reviews proposed software reliability models, ways to… CONTINUE READING
