Abstract Software reliability models play an important role in software reliability estimation and prediction. However, massive software reliability models brought difficulties to the selection of models, which make it important to select suitable models. Available software reliability model selection methods are summarized in this paper, and these methods can be classified into three types, which include method based on software reliability model selection criterion, method based on software reliability model evaluation criterion, method based on model cluster. Advantage and deficiency of each kind of method is discussed, and combination of all three kinds of methods is pointed out, which can help to realize engineering implementation of software reliability model selection.
