This note provides an alternative formulation of the software reliability models of Jelinski-Moranda and Littlewood. The formulation is in terms of failure times rather than interfailure times; the models are then equivalent to observing the first n order statistics (n is random) from a random sample of size N. The models can be generalized by using a decreasing failure rate for the failure times. For the Jelinski-Moranda model, we comment on the maximum likelihood estimate and an improved… CONTINUE READING
