Abstract: In this paper, we introduce a new prototype for web services reliability prediction based on a fuzzy belief Petri network (FBPN). Since software reliability becomes a high interest research field and the growth of web services in the last years shows an exponential rate, the need of models for web services reliability prediction increased. We also make a review of similar Petri and fuzzy models to show how this idea came to life.

Keywords: web service reliability; reliability prediction; fuzzy models; Petri networks; web services; modelling.
