Software fault analysis is on major vector adopted by different researchers to analyze the software reliability. But most of the author taken the fault individually as the fault criticality or the fault count. But in this paper, the authors have considered all aspects of software faults i.e. fault count, fault criticality, fault frequency and associatively between faults. In this paper, a three level structure is been defined to perform the fault based analysis. At first level, individual fault and fault criticality is analyzed where as in second level fault-module associatively and fault-fault associatively is discussed. At third level, the complexity of the module will be identified. Finally, all factors will be combined to identify the overall complexity and severity of the module and the system.
