Software reliability is one of the important factors of software quality. Many mathematical models are proposed in literature to predict the software quality and related reliability. Generally, during testing many factors are considered like effort, time and resources. Testing effort can be better described by time, person hours and number of test cases. During testing many resources are being consumed. In this paper an analysis is done based on incorporating the Bass diffusion testing-effort function in to NHPP Software reliability growth model and also observed its release policy.
