Abstract

Many software reliability growth models (SRGMs) have been analyzed for measuring the growth of software reliability. Selection of optimal SRGMs for use in a particular case has been an area of interest for researchers in the field of software reliability. All existing methodologies use same weight for each comparison criterion. But in reality, it is the fact that all the parameters do not have the same priority in reliability measurement. Keeping this point in mind, in this paper, a computational methodology based on weighted criteria is presented to the problem of performance analysis of various non-homogenous Poisson process (NHPP) models. It is relatively simple and requires less calculation. A set of twelve comparison criteria has been formulated and each criterion has been assigned different weight to rank the software reliability growth models proposed during the past 30 years. Case study results show that the weighted criteria value method offers a very promising technique in software reliability growth models comparison.
