Optimal software release policies with simultaneous cost and reliability requirements. (English) Zbl 0614.90041

A cost-reliability optimal software release problem is investigated for three existing software reliability growth models. The decision policies on the optimum software release times are discussed by evaluating both software cost and software reliability criteria simultaneously.
