Summary:
In today's competitive environment for software products, quality has become an increasingly important asset to software development organizations. Software quality models are tools for focusing efforts to find faults early in the development. Delaying corrections can lead to higher costs. In this research, the classification Bayesian Networks modelling technique was used to predict the software quality by classifying program modules either as fault-prone or not fault-prone. A general classification rule was applied to yield classification Bayesian Belief Network models. Six classification Bayesian Belief Network models were developed based on quality metrics data records of two very large window application systems. The fit data set was used to build the model and the test data set was used to evaluate the model. The first two models used median based data cluster technique, the second two models used median as critical value to cluster metrics using Generalized Boolean Discriminant Function and the third two models used Kolniogorov-Smirnov test to select the critical value to cluster metrics using Generalized Boolean Discriminant Function; All six models used the product metrics (FAULT or CDCHURN) as predictors.
