Frestimate Overview

Frestimate provides for software reliability predictive models which are used early in development as well as software reliability growth models which are used during testing and operation. Software reliability predictive models can be used as early as the proposal or concept phase. Software reliability growth models are used after integration. The predictive models allow for early sensitivity analysis and planning while the growth models help determine when to stop testing. 

Frestimate can predict these reliability figures of merit before the code is written
  • Software defects during testing and after deployment
  • Testing effort required to meet a desired/required objective
  • Sensitivity of certain development activities to reliability
  • Software failure rate, MTTF, MTTCF, MTBI, availability, reliability
Frestimate users
  • Reliability engineers to predict reliability of COTS and inhouse software
  • Software managers to perform sensitivity analysis to maxmize return on investment with regards to software reliability practices, plan staffing for field support and corrective actions, determine if there will be defect pileup
  • Acquistions personnel to assess the reliability risk of acquired software 
  • Software testing and QA to plan testing resources prior to testing and during testing determine if the reliability objective can and will be met and how many test hours are needed to reach that objective
Softrel assessment surveys are cross referenced to the AMSAA Software Reliability Scorecard, Rome Laboratory TR-92-52, IEC 61508-3, and DO178.  This means that several of the practices in these assessments and standards have been correlated with escaped defects.  So, for example, if your project is required to be DO178 certified, you can check all of the questions that have been cross matrixed to DO178 to reduce the time to answer the survey. Similarly with other assessments.
