An accurate prediction of number of defects in a software product during system testing contributes not only to the management of the system testing process but also to the estimation of product's maintenance. Here, a new approach, called as 'Estimation of software defects' is presented that computes an estimate of total number of defects in an ongoing testing process. This model is based on estimation theory. Unlike many existing approaches, the technique presented here does not depend on historical data from previous papers or any assumptions about the requirements and/or testers' productivity.
