Nonparametric Analysis of the Order-Statistic Model in Software Reliability

Simon Wilson, Francisco Samaniego
2007 IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering  
These considerations motivate the approach taken in this paper. We propose a nonparametric software reliability model based on the order-statistic paradigm.  ...  In the literature on statistical inference in software reliability, the assumptions of parametric models and random sampling of bugs have been pervasive.  ...  The model is a nonparametric form of the order-statistic model.  ...

Optimal Software Release Decision Based on Nonparametric Inference Approach

Yasuhiro SAITO, Tsukasa MOROGA, Tadashi DOHI
2016 Journal of Japan Industrial Management Association  
Even when estimating software reliability with any nonparametric method, it is required to predict the number of software failures that may occur in the future after releasing the software to the market  ...  Since our method is based on a predictive approach in spite of its nonparametric nature, it is useful to make flexible decisions on when to stop software testing.  ...  ,Littlewood, B. and Abdel-Ghaly, A.: "A Non-parametric Order Statistics Software Reliability Model" Software Test.  ...

The Effect of Sample Size on Parametric and Nonparametric Factor Analytical Methods

Ömür Kaya Kalkan, Hülya Kelecioğlu
2016 Educational Sciences Theory & Practice  
The associated problems cannot be eliminated by polychoric or tetrachoric correlations in place of the Pearson correlation.  ...  Linear factor analysis models used to examine constructs underlying the responses are not very suitable for dichotomous or polytomous response formats.  ...  Such cross-validity studies would improve the reliability of the evaluations.  ...

Evolution of statistical analysis in empirical software engineering research: Current state and steps forward [article]

Francisco Gomes de Oliveira Neto and Richard Torkar and Robert Feldt and Lucas Gren and Carlo A. Furia and Ziwei Huang
2019 arXiv   pre-print
To investigate the practices and trends of statistical analysis in empirical software engineering (ESE), this paper presents a review of a large pool of papers from top-ranked software engineering journals  ...  We illustrate how practical significance can be discussed in terms of both the statistical analysis and in the practitioner's context.  ...  In order to foster practical significance in ESE, we proposed a conceptual model for a statistical analysis workflow.  ...

A non-parametric approach to software reliability

Axel Gandy, Uwe Jensen
2004 Applied Stochastic Models in Business and Industry  
In this paper we present a new, nonparametric approach to software reliability.  ...  Furthermore, we present ways to obtain failure data from the development of open source software. We analyze a dataset from this source and consider several choices of covariates.  ...  Acknowledgements Financial support of this research by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft through the interdisciplinary research unit (Forschergruppe) 460 is gratefully acknowledged.  ...

Powerful and consistent analysis of likert-type ratingscales

Maurits Clemens Kaptein, Clifford Nass, Panos Markopoulos
2010 Proceedings of the 28th international conference on Human factors in computing systems - CHI '10  
These methods are chosen to ensure higher statistical power of the test (which is necessary in this field of research and practice where sample sizes are often small), or because of the lack of software  ...  We demonstrate the necessity of this approach by showing the errors in the parametric treatment of nonparametric data in experiments of the size typically reported in HCI research.  ...  A second reason for the minority usage of nonparametric statistics is the unavailability of software to perform such analysis.  ...
