Abstract: Three questions to which software developers want accurate, precise answers are “How can the software system fail?”, “What bad things will happen if the software fails?”, and “How many failures will the software experience?”. In this paper we discuss several of the most prevalent and useful techniques that have been devised to answer these questions. For each technique, we present its purpose and background, describe the process of performing the technique, and evaluate it in a discussion section. We also discuss lessons learned from practice, describe available tools and resources to help the practitioner select and implement failure assessment techniques, and identify some future directions for the topic.
