Evaluation method for software system reliability is the foundation of studying software system reliability. In this paper, we propose an evaluation method for software system reliability, and flight simulation system is used as an example to illustrate in detail how this method is used to construct evaluation model for system reliability. The method has certain reference value for reliability evaluation work of large and complex software systems.
