Abstract: Software industry is on rise nowadays and it has become the part and parcel in the lives of human beings. Such software when used as an application should give the customer a feeling of trustworthiness which is nothing but technically termed as reliability. The system should be able to perform the required functions according to the stated conditions for a specific period of time. It is very important to maintain the reliability of the software to keep track on the important information which includes resources, capital, details of employees, etc., software plays an equal role along with hardware and therefore the evaluation and measurement are done equally. The most challenging task for the industry is to develop reliable software which consumes more amount of time and expensive too. This study was performed with the purpose of estimating the reliability based on Burr type X software reliability growth model. In this case we adopt a testing called as reliability testing whose purpose is to discover the potential problems in the phases of development like design as soon as possible and ultimately provide the belief that the system meets its reliability requirements.
