Software efficiency indicators play a key role in its optimization. Various ways are available to ensure software optimization. One of the key indicators of software is its reliability. Software reliability refers to the program features to perform certain functions and they are kept within certain limits under specified conditions. Software reliability is determined by its non-denial and recoverability. Software reliability is considered an important quality factor. The article uses the VIKOR (VIsekriterijumska optimizacija i KOmpromisno Resenje) method for the development of an algorithm to increase software reliability. The VIKOR method is used for different areas. Some sources provide information on the application of the VIKOR method. It refers to a multi-criteria decision method or multi-criteria decision analysis method. The alternatives here are ranked and the one closest to the ideal so-called compromise is determined. As a result of the author's research, six important criteria for software reliability are identified and alternatives are used. The fuzzy VIKOR method is used for multi-criteria evaluation of software. The work done is considered to be novel, and the advantage is that the selected criteria have not yet been used for this type of task, this positively changes its efficiency. The experiments perform positive results.
