This paper proposes a component ranking method to identify important components which have great impact on the system reliability. This method, which is opposite to an existing method, believes components which frequently invoke other components have more impact than others and employs component invocation structures and invocation frequencies for making important component ranking. It can strongly support for improving the reliability of software systems, especially large-scale systems. Extensive experiments are provided to validate this method and draw performance comparison.
