Abstract -
Software Reliability Growth Model(SRGM) is a mathematical model which represent, how the software reliability improves as faults are detected and repaired. The performance of SRGM is judged by its ability to fit to the software failure data. How good does a mathematical model fit to the data and reliability of software is presented in the current paper, considering Duane model. Regression method is used to estimate the model parameters. To assess the performance of the considered Software Reliability Growth Model, the parameters are estimated based on the real software failure data sets.
