In this paper we present an optimization framework based on an evolutionary algorithm to design a modular software application taking into account its architecture, reliability and cost. The specific design problem that we address is the reliability maximization of a software application subject to a specified cost constraint. Evolutionary algorithm (EA) is used as an optimization technique because of the discontinuous search space, usually nonlinear but monotonic relation between cost and… CONTINUE READING
