Reliability Engineering Terms – Software Reliability

September 6th, 2022

What is Software Reliability?
Software reliability is the probability that software will operate failure-free for a specified period of time in a specified environment. It is an important contributing factor impacting system reliability (which includes hardware and human reliability). Various approaches can be used to improve the reliability of software with an appropriate balance between development…  Read More
