Seminar Chairman: Professor Longbing Cao
There are numerous instances where failures of computer-controlled systems have led to colossal loss of human lives and money. With increased complexity of products design, shortened development cycles and highly destructive consequences of software failures, a major responsibility lies in the areas of Software Debugging, Testing and Verification. As software systems have become more and more complex, the importance of effective, well planned testing has increased many folds. Several software reliability growth models designed to work in different environments exist in the literature. As projects were developed, new software reliability growth models were built to suit them. Consequently, we have a large number of SRGM, however none of which works across different environments. Software reliability is a key part in software quality. The study of software reliability can be categorized into three parts: modeling, measurement and improvement. It has been observed that number of factors such as software development methodology, software development environment, complexity of the software, software personnel, etc. may affect the behavior of software reliability. Recently, soft computing approach has been applied in estimating and predicting software reliability growth phenomenon.
