Abstract

The actual task is to develop the defect-free medical software by establishing the presence of residual defects, and the purpose of this study is to develop an intelligent method & system of developing the defect-free medical software by establishing the presence of residual defects. The paper develops a method of developing the defect-free medical software by establishing the presence of residual defects, the essence of which is to identify the set of defects of different levels of criticality and analysis of this set for the presence or absence of residual defects. The method differs from the known ones in that the input information about the results of the basic testing is processed by an artificial neural network. The proposed system of developing the defect-free medical software by establishing the presence of residual defects allows the user to obtain a conclusion about establishing the presence or absence of residual defects (indicating the level(s) of criticality of residual defects in case of their presence) based on the processing of information on the number and types of defects detected during the basic testing contained in the basic test report. On the basis of heuristic estimates, the threshold values of the number of defects of each criticality level are defined, after exceeding which a conclusion is made about establishing the presence or absence of residual defects (indicating the criticality level(s) of residual defects in case of their presence). In general, the proposed system allows the development of defect-free software by detecting residual defects in medical software after the basic testing, thereby increasing the veracity of testing and, accordingly, increasing the quality of medical software.
