Software Engineering: Software Reliability Measurement Techniques

Software Engineering can be defined as the study (detailed study) of the engineering to design, develop, and maintain different software’s. And basically, the concept of software engineering was introduced to address the issues related to low-quality software projects.

Besides, these problems are arises when the software development does not meet the following conditions that are as follows:

  1. Budgets.
  2. Quality issues.
  3. Timeliness.
  4. Budgets.

According to the IEEE, software engineering can be defined as the application of the systematic, disciplined, that is the computable approach to perform the following operations on the development of the software as follows:

  1. Development.
  2. Operation.
  3. And the Maintenance of the software.

The main aim of software engineering is that they are meant to ensure that the software should be developed consistently with correctness within the time limit and following the budget defined for the particular project.

In this tutorial, we will learn about the following things in Software Engineering is as follows:

  1. What do you understand by the term Software Reliability?
  2. What is meant by Software Reliability Metrics?
  3. What are the different Reliability Measurement Techniques?

What do you understand by the term Software Reliability?

The term software reliability is defined as the crucial element in software engineering that is an essential validation performed to determine the critical characteristics of the software system in terms of the efficient quality assurance, compatibility, overall efficiency, applicability, and performance related to the design, installation coverage, maintainability, and also the process documentation continuance. And they are termed the hard-hitting exertion, and the reason behind that is none other than the intricacy of the respective software systems, which are inclined to be elevated as part of the technological world growth.

 What is meant by Software Reliability Metrics?

The term Software Reliability metrics can be used to derive and measure the reliability of the respective software system application, which are in the form of mass expression or numerical. And the type of metrics that the particular applications developers choose can rely on the system behaviour.

What are the different Reliability Measurement Techniques?

For the measurement of the software system, there are various types of reliability measurement techniques, which are as follows:

  • Product Metrics.
  • Project Metrics.
  • Process Metrics.
  • Fault and Failure Metrics.

 

  1. Product Metrics: Product metrics are one of the finest reliability measurement techniques that can be used to measure the product's development and also to build requirement-specific documents and system design documents. Moreover, the product metrics are related to the specific software projects and work for assessing whether the given projects are sufficient enough through all the records on the attributes such as:
  1. Usability.
  2. Portability.
  3. Reliability.
  4. And maintainability.

And the product metrics take all the required measurements for the defined source code itself only.

 

  • It was assumed that the size of the particular software defines its complexity, effort required in the development and also the dependability, and the easiest and the simplest way of estimating the size of the software are as follows:
  1. Line of codes (LOC).
  2. Line of code in thousands (KLOC).

And the LOC (Line of codes) are based on the idea that program length can indicate the attributes related to the programs, like the efforts done for the development and the ease of Maintenance. It can also measure the programs related functional complexity unaffected by the programming language.

  • It is elementary to measure the software development functionality based on the count of the outputs, inquiries, interfaces, and inputs with the help of the function point metrics technique.
  • And the company uses the quality metrics to measure the quality of the various software products at the different levels as required and at the different levels. With the help of the quality metrics, we can remove it directly.
  • And to determine the complexity associated with the programs, control the complexity-oriented metrics. With the help of these, one can easily simplify the code into the most straightforward graphical representation.
  •  The product metrics are categorized into two different classes and with the additional functionality that is as follows:
  1. Static Metrics: Can be used for the measurements collected by the system representations, including the programs and the design.
  2. Dynamic Metrics: Can be used for the measurements collected by the executing programs.

 

  1. Project Management Metrics: The Project Management metrics are used to define the execution related to the project and its characteristics. One can use them to manage the projects and thus helps in achieving better projects. It was assumed that a better relationship exists between the completion of the projects and the needs of the desired quality objectives within the given time limit and the development process.

These metrics are:

  1. Productivity.
  2. Schedule and cost.
  3. Pattern related to the staffing.
  4. And also the total number of the developers (that is, the software developers)

 

  1. Process Metrics: Process metrics are the most delicate software reliability measurement techniques that can be used to measure the software development processes and the related environment. The main objective of the process metrics is to make the completion of the process accurately and on time (within the given time), and it directly impacts the quality of the products.

And as a result, the process metrics can be used to do the following things:

  • Monitoring.
  • Estimating.
  • Enhancing the dependability of the software.
  • Improving the reliability.
  • And the quality of the software.

 

For Example:

  1. The total number of defects that are noticed during the testing process.
  2. The effectiveness in detecting the respective defects and their removal during the process is called the execution.
  3. Many more.

 

  1. Faults and the Failure Metrics: The defects can be defined as the fault in the respective programs which get appear when the schedules get indulged in causing the marks or the error when they are executed under the particular and defined condition or the environment, and the respective faults and the failure metrics can be used to determine that whether the given software are free from defects or any the failure. And to achieve this during the testing, the faults are caught and recovered so that the software is free from various errors and defects or bugs.
