The Software Error Estimation Program (SWEEP) was developed to aid with the control and management of error data for software projects. It allows you to make software error estimates that are useful in setting project goals and monitoring the quality of the software as it develops. SWEEP uses software error data available early in the development cycle to project the number of errors that will be found in later stages of development and the errors contained in the software when it is delivered (latent error content). SWEEP is implemented on the Microsoft Excel 4.0 spreadsheet system and can be operated using either a Macintosh or a PC.
