Incorporating Burr Type XII Testing-efforts into Software Reliability Growth Modeling and Actual Data Analysis with Applications
Software reliability is the probability that the given software functions correctly under a given environment, during the specified period of time. During the software-testing phase, software reliability is highly related to the amount of development resources spent on detecting and correcting latent software errors, i.e. the amount of testing effort expenditures. This paper develops Software Reliability Growth Models (SRGM) based on Non Homogeneous Poisson Process (NHPP) which incorporates the Burr Type XII Testing-Effort Functions (TEF).
