Abstract: Three software reliability growth models (SRGMs) – one proposed by the authors and two existing in literature based on non homogeneous Poisson Process (NHPP) are considered. Combinations of the three models are suggested as super models to measure software reliability. A comparative study of the suggested models is made with reference to three criteria as applied to eight different data sets and is noticed that the suggested model has a good contribution in the combination to come out as a better SRGM model.
