Reasons for software reliability being difficult to measure

The reasons why software reliability is difficult to measure can be summarized as follows:

  •  The reliability improvement due to fixing a single bug depends on where the bug is located in the code.
  •  The perceived reliability of a software product is highly observer-dependent.
  •  The reliability of a product keeps changing as errors are detected and fixed.
  • Hardware reliability vs. software reliability differs.
