Reliability engineering is now an essential part of product development. In the area of electronics, reliability needs to be checked for each critical component before the product is shipped. Electronic products can range from computers to pace makers.;Over the years, several tools have been developed to estimate hardware/software reliability. Typically, such tools are either for hardware or software. This thesis presents a Software Tool for Reliability Estimation (STORE), which can be used for hardware components, software components, and for systems having both hardware and software components.;The objective of this research was to study several hardware-software reliability models, existing algorithms to compute system reliability and to model state dependent systems. A comprehensive software tool to estimate reliability of hardware and software component that are state dependent and independent was developed. This software tool was implemented in Visual Basic for a Windows 98 operating system.
