Abstract
Accurately predicting the number of defects in program modules is a major problem in the quality control of large software development efforts. With good estimates early in the software development cycle, software engineers can take actions to avoid or prepare for emerging quality problems. Some source code measures are closely related to the distribution of defects across program modules. Using these relationships, software engineers develop models that provide early defect content estimates. Work with neural network based models has demonstrated their utility for this purpose. In this paper, we expand upon early neural network results for predicting the number of defects in program modules.
