On the Role of Weibull-type Distributions in Binomial Software Reliability Modeling
Xiao Xiao, Tadashi Dohi (Hiroshima Univ.) R2012-7
Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) The binomial software reliability model (SRM) is one of the most classical but plausible SRMs, and can describe many software fault-detection patterns in continuous time. It is well known that the Weibull distribution plays an important role in reliability applications because of its flexibility in being able to represent various patterns of failure rate functions. In this paper, we introduce some recent generations of Weibull-type distribution to represent the underlying software fault-detection time distribution of the binomial SRMs. We study the effectiveness of Weibull-type distributions in software reliability modeling through goodness-of-fit test and prediction analysis with real software fault data.
