SREPT - Description

Software reliability estimation and prediction tool (SREPT) is developed by Srinivasan et al. It offers various techniques that can be used at various stages in the software life-cycle such as complexity metrics-based techniques used in the pre-test phase, interfailure time-based techniques used during the testing phase, and architecture-based techniques that can be used at all stages. Thus it becomes possible to monitor the quality of the entire software development process under a unified framework. SREPT also has the ability to suggest release time for software based on release criteria.

SREPT combines the capabilities of the existing tools and offers the following features in addition

This tool is expected to have a widespread impact on the area of software reliability and prediction because of its applicability at multiple phases in the software life cycle, and the incorporation of various techniques in a systematic, user-friendly form in a GUI-based environment.
