Software reliability is the primary concern of software development organizations, and the exponentially increasing demand for reliable software requires modeling techniques to be developed in the present era. Small unnoticeable drifts in the software can culminate into a disaster. Early removal of these errors helps the organization improve and enhance the software’s reliability and save money, time, and effort. Many soft computing techniques are available to get solutions for critical problems but selecting the appropriate technique is a big challenge. This paper proposed an efficient algorithm that can be used for the prediction of software reliability. The proposed algorithm is implemented using a hybrid approach named Neuro-Fuzzy Inference System and has also been applied to test data. In this work, a comparison among different techniques of soft computing has been performed. After testing and training the real time data with the reliability prediction in terms of mean relative error and mean absolute relative error as 0.0060 and 0.0121, respectively, the claim has been verified. The results claim that the proposed algorithm predicts attractive outcomes in terms of mean absolute relative error plus mean relative error compared to the other existing models that justify the reliability prediction of the proposed model. Thus, this novel technique intends to make this model as simple as possible to improve the software reliability.
