We describe an experiment investigating the distribution of failure intensity in software reliability growth models. We found that the assumption of conventional models that the failure intensity follows a gamma distribution is not always true. Our new software reliability model does not make this assumption; rather, the failure intensity is calculated from failure data. We show that our new model predicts more accurately the number of detected faults for our study project than the conventional models.
