Predicting Software Errors and Defects

[article]
Summary:

Phase Containment Effectiveness (PCE) measures the ability of software development phases to detect faults. A weakness of this measure is that it determines how effective the phase was. This paper presents a fault prediction model that uses the PCE and related process measures to statistically predict the number of Faults, Errors, and Defects.
