    Software testing often results in delays to market and high cost without assuring product reliability. Software reliability engineering can be applied to carefully engineer testing to overcome these weaknesses. This application is often referred to as software-reliability-engineered testing. We present several case studies illustrating the application of software reliability engineering to testing... View full abstract»

    Results of applying software reliability engineering (SRE) processes and tools on two teleconference support systems are documented. Beginning with the initial evaluation of SRE technology for AT&T's TeleConference Service Development in 1992, this presentation covers the eventual use of SRE in many phases of software development for two separate systems. SRE provided a gauge by which quality ... View full abstract»

    This paper describes our practical experiences in developing an operational profile for a telecommunications system given little existing knowledge about the maintenance/provisioning process and the system's environment. The specific system under test is a high availability, real-time system used to provision, maintain, and forecast network hardware for AT&T's emerging technologies. The system... View full abstract»

    As software grows in both size and complexity, reliability becomes a critical issue, particularly in the area of telecommunications. This case study examines a tool and procedures developed at a large telecommunications company for software risk assessment. EMERALD (Enhanced Measurement for Early Risk Assessment of Latent Defects) has been applied at all stages of the software life-cycle to indica... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a reliability and availability evaluation of a large network based education (NBE) system called NovaNET. NovaNET is a wide area NBE system which serves thousands of users on a daily basis. A successful NBE system is expected to provide appropriate Quality of Service (QoS) guarantees to its users. Among the most important extended QoS parameters are system reliability and avail... View full abstract»

    The Space Shuttle avionics software represents a successful integration of many of the computer industry's most advanced software engineering practices and approaches. Beginning in the late 1970s this software development and maintenance project has evolved one of the world's most mature software processes applying the principles of the highest levels of the Carnegie Mellon University Software Eng...

    We have analyzed fault data comprising nearly 30,000 records (including in-process and field data) from two real products A and B over multiple releases, using orthogonal defect classification (ODC). We exploit the information captured by ODC triggers to evaluate the development activities, and identify specific actions for improvement in development. We illustrate the use of triggers to capture c... View full abstract»

    AFOTEC is responsible for the operational testing of application software used in weapon systems. In order to determine if a system is ready for operational testing, raw data from unit and integration testing are analyzed to determine if the software is exhibiting maturity and reliability growth. A graphical tool containing a library of widely accepted software reliability growth models then selec... View full abstract»

    The application of SRET (Software Reliability Engineered Testing) to PAA (Project Accounting Application) can be described by the following process: define necessary reliability, develop the operational profile, analyze operational modes, perform load tests per the operational profile, track field reliability and track field arrival rates. All of these are outlined in this paper. For release 1.0 o... View full abstract»
