Software reliability growth or estimation models use failure data from testing to forecast the failure rate or mtbf into the future. Dependability is the ability of a system to deliver service that can justi ably be trusted. Since software reliability is one of the most important aspects of software quality, reliability engineering approaches are practiced in software field as well.
Embedded system design issues the rest of the story. Software plays a vital role in almost all of the embedded systems and systems that are missioncritical including aircrafts, automobile, nuclear power plan. The models depend on the assumptions about the fault rate during testing which can either be increasing, peaking, decreasing or some combination of decreasing and increasing. R an empirical study on reliability modeling for diverse software systems. When the lifetime of a system is exponentially distributed, the reliability of the system is. We propose a software reliability model for estimating, measuring, and controlling software reliability of embedded systems, and a software test stopping equation for determining software testing time.
