Abstract : This effort integrated software reliability, measurement, and test techniques in terms of prediction, estimation, and assessment. Experiments were conducted to compare six testing techniques and to measure the effect of software product and process variables on software reliability. A guidebook was produced to help program managers control and manage software reliability and testing. Error/anomaly and code reviews were the test techniques found to be the most effective at the unit level; branch testing and code reviews were the most effective at the CSC level. Software Reliability, Software Measurement, Software Testing.
