Software Release Time Problem (SRTD) focuses on the timely release of software keeping the constraints of Quality and Cost. Several SRTD models have been proposed in literature since 1970s. Software Reliability Growth Models (SRGM) give the mean number of failures during the process of debugging. In perfect debugging, fault is removed completely; whereas in imperfect debugging, faults are not removed perfectly during debugging process. A probability is always attached with the imperfect debugging. This paper focuses on the optimal release time of an imperfect debugging model with constants as cost and reliability in fuzzy environment with testing effort. Results are illustrated numerically, the problem of timely release of software in imperfect debugging is addressed, and optimal release time with given constraints is given.

Abstract


Software Release Time Problem (SRTD) focuses on the timely release of software keeping the constraints of Quality and Cost. Several SRTD models have been proposed in literature since 1970s. Software Reliability Growth Models (SRGM) give the mean number of failures during the process of debugging. In perfect debugging, fault is removed completely; whereas in imperfect debugging, faults are not removed perfectly during debugging process. A probability is always attached with the imperfect debugging. This paper focuses on the optimal release time of an imperfect debugging model with constants as cost and reliability in fuzzy environment with testing effort. Results are illustrated numerically, the problem of timely release of software in imperfect debugging is addressed, and optimal release time with given constraints is given.
