This paper summarizes existing software reliability growth models (SRGM's) described by nonhomogeneous Poisson processes. The SRGM's are classified in terms of the software reliability growth index of the error detection rate per error. The maximum-likelihood estimations based on the SRGM's are discussed for software reliability data analysis and software reliability evaluation. Using actual software error data observed by software testing, application examples of the existing SRGM's are illustrated.
