Software Reliability Growth Model

  title={Software Reliability Growth Model},
  author={Gaurav Kumar Aggarwal},
Software Reliability Model is categorized into two, one is static model and the other one is dynamic model. Dynamic models observe the temporary behavior of debugging process during testing phase. In Static Models, modeling and analysis of program logic is done on the same code. A Model which describes about error detection in software Reliability is called Software Reliability Growth Model. This paper reviews various existing software reliability models and there failure intensity function and…
