Software Reliability

Lecture

Please release me let me go,
No bugs are left here anymore.
To waste your time would be a sin.
Release me, don't test me once again.

The lectures deal with quantitative techniques for the determination of the reliability of a software system. They consider both commercial software packages, for which considerations about the time-to-market may dominate over the possibility of prolonging the testing phase, and safety-relevant software system, whose licensing must rely on a well-founded reliability assessment. With this distinction in mind the lectures present systematic procedures in order to derive reliability estimations on the basis representative samples. The theoretical introduction of the topics above is completed by reports on real-world industrial experiences.

Please release me can't you see,
You'd be a fool to cling to me.
There're no bugs left, just features, dear.
Release me, don't wait another year.
