This company is supported by the telecom reliability experts formerly from the Bell System Companies, aerospace industries, and Department of Defense.   These researchers, system analysts, and operational experts are considered to be the best in the industry and were responsible for establishing many de-facto reliability standards.

Why Software Reliability?

In recent years, software failures have caused catastrophic failures in air traffic control systems, space probes, telephone systems, and medical devices, just to name a few. Software failures are usually not easily predictable as hardware failures. Hardware reliability assessment techniques are generally not applicable to software failures since its failure mechanism is quite different, and requires extensive analysis using sophisticated tools and methodologies.

This company conducts research in new methodologies and techniques that would help in making software more reliable and predictable.

Software Reliability Research, LLC is registered with the Central Contractor Registration (CCR). The Central Contractor Registration is the primary vendor database for the U.S. Federal Government.

Some points to ponder about software reliability

"Finding and fixing a software problem after delivery is 100 times more expensive than finding it during the requirements and design phase" - Barry Boehm - Software Defect Reduction Top 10 List, IEEE Computer.
"Without software measurement as a guide, significant improvements in software performance are unlikely, if not impossible. - Capers Jones- Applied Software Measurement, McGraw-Hill.
"The cost of quality assurance might me as low as 2% in some consumer products and or as high as 80% in products such as spaceships, nuclear reactors, and aircraft, where the cost of failure is measured in human lives - Boris Beiser- Software System Testing and Quality Assurance, Van Nostrand Reinhold Co.
