This article proposes a novel approach for quantitative software reliability assessment guaranteeing high component interaction coverage. For this purpose, measures for operational representativeness, independence of test cases and integration coverage are evaluated and optimized by multi-criterial genetic algorithms. They yield optimal test cases supporting the derivation of conservative reliability measures.
