Nowadays, aiming at the problem of long testing duration of software reliability demonstration testing, this paper presents a method that can greatly shorten testing duration. First, the idea of a monotone decreasing function is integrated into the Bayesian theory of software reliability demonstration testing, and then a software reliability demonstration testing scheme of a Bayesian method based on monotone decreasing function is proposed. Secondly, according to the real-time prior information in the testing phase, priori information is dynamically integrated. Two kinds of priori dynamic integration methods suitable for two different conditions are proposed. Finally, through experimental analysis, it is proven that the testing scheme can significantly reduce testing duration under the same confidence condition, and the two kinds of prior dynamic integration methods are feasible.
