Software Reliability, NHPP, Pareto Type II Distribution, Parameter eEstimation
The past 4 decades have seen the formulation of several software reliability growth models to predict the reliability and error content of software systems. This paper presents Pareto type II model as a software reliability growth model, together with expressions for various reliability performance measures. Theory of probability, distribution function, probability distributions plays major role in software reliability model building. This paper presents estimation procedures to access reliability of a software system using Pareto distribution, which is based on Non Homogenous Poisson Process (NHPP).
