Modeling a System of Softwares Under Imperfect Debugging
by Marcus A. Agustin and Ma. Zenia N. Agustin
This paper considers a series system of p softwares where the
failure of a software follows a modified Jelinski-Moranda model. In
this model, the debugging scheme of a software is imperfect in the sense that
the number of bugs introduced to the software that caused
system failure is a random variable. Moreover, tasks are assigned to the
system with the task completion times assumed to be random. The
main interest is to estimate the parameters that describe the failure process
of each software as well as the system reliability.
Finally, the finite-sample properties of these estimators are investigated
via a simulation.
