Software reliability allocation plays an important role during software product design phase, which has close relationship with software modeling and cost evaluation. We formulated an architecture-based approach for modeling software reliability optimization problem, on this basis a dynamic programming algorithm has been illustrated in this paper which can be used to allocate the reliability to each component so as to minimize the cost of designing software while meeting the desired reliability goal. The result of our experiment show an optimal or near optimal solution to the problem of selecting the component comprising the software can be obtained with lower cost.
