Abstract

This article addresses the development of analytical models to identify fault-prone components. Because of the lack of physical underpinnings, the software development mechanism is not understood well enough to derive theory-based models. Therefore, these models are obtained from experimental or historical data after an iterative process. Some commonly used techniques and a recent methodology based on radial basis functions are described. A case study is presented to illustrate the model's development, evaluation, and selection process.

Keywords:

  • software quality;
  • classification models;
  • radial basis function (RBF);
  • fault-prone components
