Abstract : The objective of this study was to demonstrate the use and applicability to Air Force software acquisition managers of six quantitative software reliability models to a major command, control, communications, and intelligence (C3I) system. The scope of the effort involved the collection of software error data from an ongoing C3I project, fitting the six models to the data thus collected, analysis of the predictions provided by the models, and the development of conclusions, recommendations, and guidelines for software acquisition managers pertaining to the use and applicability of the six software reliability models.
