SPC for Software Reliability Using Inflection S-Shaped Model

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Traditional statistical analysis methods account for natural variation but require aggregation of measurements over time, which can delay decision making. Statistical Process Control (SPC) is a branch of statistics that combines rigorous time series analysis methods with graphical presentation of data, often yielding insights into the data more quickly and in a way more understandable to lay decision makers .SPC and its primary tool-the control chart-provide researchers and practitioners with a method of better understanding and communicating data from software reliability improvement process efforts .This paper provides an s-shaped software reliability growth model based on the Non-Homogenous Poisson Process (NHPP).The maximum likelihood approach is used to estimate the unknown parameters of the model.
