Abstract

Over the past 30 years, many software reliability growth models (SRGMs) have been proposed for estimation of reliability growth of software. In fact, effective debugging will not be easy because the fault may not be immediately obvious. In the past, some researchers ever used an infinite server queueing (ISQ) model to describe the software debugging behavior. An infinite-server queueing model is considered where access of customers to service is controlled by a gate and the gate is open only if all servers are free. However, the finite server queueing (FSQ) model is first advantageously modeled as an infinite-server system. Thus, in this paper, we will show how to incorporate both FSQ and ISQ models into software reliability estimation and prediction. In addition, here we also consider the factor of perfect/imperfect debugging. Experimental results show that the proposed framework to incorporate both fault detection and correction processes for SRGM has a fairly accurate prediction capability.
