Sequential Analysis of Statistical science could be adopted in order to decide upon the reliability / unreliability of the developed software very quickly. The procedure adopted for this is, Sequential Probability Ratio Test (SPRT). It is designed for continuous monitoring. The likelihood based SPRT proposed by Wald is very general and it can be used for many different probability distributions. The parameters are estimated using Modified Maximum Likelihood Estimation (MMLE). In the present paper, the HLSRGM (Half Logistic Software Reliability Growth model) is used on five sets of existing software reliability data and analyzed the results.
