This paper presents a software reliability growth model (SRGM) based on a fuzzy stochastic differential equation (FSDE) approach. The software shall comprise of dependent and independent main and sub-components owing to a wide range of functionalities in the system. In order to obtain the optimal date of product release, a two-phase fuzzy goal programing (FGP) method has been applied for solving a fuzzy multi-objective chance-constrained programming (FMOCCP) model. While framing the cost function, the costs associated with changes in software specifications have been considered along with other cost factors. In most cases, the changes in software specifications during the software development process are dynamic in nature necessitating the cost budget to be considered as a random variable while formulating the fuzzy chance-constrained model. The SRGM proposed has been validated on real-time data sets and numerical illustrations have been provided to instantiate the optimal time of product release.
