Abstract:


Background: With the rapid development of computer and Internet technologies, the measurement of soft-ware reliability has become a key point. Software reliability modeling is an important way to measure soft-ware reliability. However, there are many disadvantages in the classic model. Therefore, this paper reviews current researches in software reliability and discusses ways to improve the model from a new perspective.

Objective: This paper reviews the current researches on software reliability, analyzes the existing patented technology, and points out some future directions to improve the current models to provide a more accurate and efficient way for software reliability measurement.

Methods: This study introduces the general methods of software reliability evaluation, analyzes the disad-vantages of these methods in practical application, draws lessons from the patent, and puts forward some new ideas to solve the problems.

Results: Disadvantages of current researches are identified based on literature review. In addition, two sug-gestions are given to improve the current models.

Conclusion: Although the software reliability has made great progress, there are still many things to be stud-ied in the future. The problems of software reliability in real life should be gradually solved.
