During the past few Decades, many software reliability growth models have been suggested for estimating reliability of software as software reliability growth models. The Functions suggested were non-linear in nature, so it was difficult to estimate the proper parameters. An Estimation method based on Ant Colony Algorithm in which parameters are estimated is discussed in this paper. In this paper, Numerical examples which have been based on five sets of real failure data have been discussed

The accuracy of the results using proposed method when compared with PSO algorithm has higher accuracy for at least 10 times for majority of the models
