Software Reliability Growth Model with Bass Diffusion Test-Effort Function and Analysis of Software Release Policy

Shaik. Mohammad Rafi and Shaheda Akthar

Abstract—Software reliability is one of the important factors of software quality. Many mathematical models are proposed in literature to predict the software quality and related reliability. Generally during testing many factors are considered like effort, time and resources. Testing effort can be better described by time, person hours and number of test cases. During testing many resources are being consumed. In this paper an analysis is done based on incorporating the Bass diffusion testing-effort function in to NHPP Software reliability growth model and also observed its release policy. Experiments are performed on the real datasets. Parameters are calculated and observed that our model is best fitted for the datasets.

Index Terms—Software reliability, software testing, testing effort, non-homogeneous poisson process (NHPP), software cost.
