The probability that software will work and produce desirable outputs for a specified time under a certain environment is called the reliability of the software. The estimation of remaining errors in the software is the deciding factor for the release of the software or the amount of more testing which is required. Software growth reliability models are used for the correct estimation of the remaining errors. In this paper the Goel-Okumoto Model has been selected and its various parameters are discussed with a case study. A criterion has also been evaluated for the estimation of reliability of any software.
