We discuss software reliability assessment considering multiple changes of software fault-detection phenomenon. The testing-time when the characteristic of the software failure-occurrence or fault-detection phenomenon changes notably in the testing-phase of a software development process is called change-point. It is known that the occurrence of the change-point influences the accuracy for the software reliability assessment based on a software reliability growth models, which are mainly divided into software failure-occurrence time and fault counting models. This paper discusses software reliability growth modeling frameworks considering with the effect of the multiple change-point occurrence on the software reliability growth process in software failure-occurrence time and fault counting modeling. And we show numerical illustrations for the software reliability analyses based on our models by using actual data.
