Software reliability is one of the most important characteristics of software quality. Its measurement and management technologies employed during software life cycle are essential for producing and maintaining quality/reliable software systems. It can also be monitored efficiently using Statistical Process Control (SPC). It assists the software development team to identify and actions to be taken during software failure process and hence, assures better software reliability. In this paper, the authors propose a control mechanism based on the cumulative observations of Interval domain data using mean value function of Pareto type II distribution, which is based on Non-Homogenous Poisson Process (NHPP).
