Abstract The paper commences with a description of some of the difficulties associated with software testing and demonstrates why, for large and complex software systems, it freqently occurs that the testing process is terminated and the software released in the full expectation that it still contains many errors. The possible use of statistical models as an aid to decision making in both the testing and operational phases is then discussed and several such models are critically reviewed. Some discussion of formal techniques of program development is then given and this is followed by a brief description of two ancillary techniques, namely software fault tolerance and software complexity metrics.
