It argued that software engineering is about to reach a new stage, the reliability stage, that stresses customers' operational needs and that software-reliability engineering will make this stage possible. Software-reliability engineering is defined as the applied science of predicting, measuring, and managing the reliability of software-based systems to maximize customer satisfaction. The basic concepts of software reliability-engineering and the reasons why it is important are examined. The application of software-reliability engineering at each stage of the life cycle is described.<>
