It would obviously be very valuable to know in advance which files in
the next release of a large software system are most likely to contain
the largest numbers of defects. To accomplish this, we developed a
negative binomial regression model and used it to predict the expected
number of bugs in each file of the next release of a software
system. The predictions are based on code characteristics and bug and
modification history data. We will discuss what we have learned from
applying the model to make predictions for 170 releases of nine large
industrial systems, each with multiple years of field exposure, and
tell you about our success in making these predictions. We'll also
discuss some of the lessons learned and issues that had to be dealt
