Authors(3) :-Kapil Sahu, Dr. Umesh Kumar Lilhore, Prof Nitin Agarwal

In software development process testing process ensures quality management of the product by ensuring bugs free product. Existing methods are based on Na´ve byes, SVM methods, which encounters with several issues such as poor precision, recall, TPR and accuracy results. In this research, we are presenting an improved data reduction technique based on kNN & NB with hybrid selection method for effective software bugs triage. Reasons behind the selection of two methods are, k nearest neighbor technique will help in word counts from bug report data and Na´ve byes method helps to measure the frequency of the word. The proposed method uses bug report classification, bug report retrieval, and bug report triage. In this proposed method we are also using hybrid selection method for reducing the database, feature selection, and Instance selection methods. Existing method Na´ve byes and proposed (kNN + NB with Hybrid selection) are implemented over MATLAB simulator and various performance measuring parameters such as precision, recall, accuracy, detection time and TPR are calculated. An experimental study clearly shows that our proposed method shows outstanding in terms of all the performance measuring parameters as compared to the existing method for bug triage and data reduction.
