DescriptionFrom University Video Communications' catalog:
"Software Reliability Engineering (SRE) is widely used as a Best Current Practice at AT&T, and is key for helping engineers and managers gain the edge in today's international competitive software systems environment. SRE starts with user and developer jointly setting quantitative reliability objectives and specifying how the software will be used. This helps both in systems architecture design and the development process, making it possible to focus resources on exactly the reliability needed and on the most-used functions. SRE tracks reliability during test, guiding to a suitable release time. It can also be used for acceptance testing of components or systems, and measures achieved reliability in the field in order to guide product and development process improvement."
