Fractals are mathematical or natural objects that are made of parts similar to the whole in certain ways. In this paper a software reliability forecasting method of software failure is proposed based on predictability of fractal time series. The empirical failure data (three data sets of Musa's) are used to demonstrate the performance of the reliability prediction. Compared with other methods, our method is effective.
