Authoritative resource providing step-by-step guidance for producing reliable software to be tailored for specific projects

Software Reliability Techniques for Real-World Applications is a practical, up to date, go-to source that can be referenced repeatedly to efficiently prevent software defects, find and correct defects if they occur, and create a higher level of confidence in software products. From content development to software support and maintenance, the author creates a depiction of each phase in a project such as design and coding, operation and maintenance, management, product production, and concept development and describes the activities and products needed for each.

Software Reliability Techniques for Real-World Applications introduces clear ways to understand each process of software reliability and explains how it can be managed effectively and reliably. The book is supported by a plethora of detailed examples and systematic approaches, covering analogies between hardware and software reliability to ensure a clear understanding. Overall, this book helps readers create a higher level of confidence in software products.

In Software Reliability Techniques for Real-World Applications, readers will find specific information on:
* Defects, including where defects enter the project system, effects, detection, and causes of defects, and how to handle defects
* Project phases, including concept development and planning, requirements and interfaces, design and coding, and integration, verification, and validation
* Roadmap and practical guidelines, including at the start of a project, as a member of an organization, and how to handle troubled projects
* Techniques, including an introduction to techniques in general, plus techniques by organization (systems engineering, software, and reliability engineering)

Software Reliability Techniques for Real-World Applications is a practical text on software reliability, providing over sixty-five different techniques and step-by-step guidance for producing reliable software. It is an essential and complete resource on the subject for software developers, software maintainers, and producers of software.
