Mining software repositories is definitely an interdisciplinary domain, which aims to use data mining techniques to cope with software engineering problems to automate the bug triaging process. To prevent the costly price of manual bug triage, we advise a computerized bug triage approach, which are applicable text classification strategies to predict designers for bug reviews. Within this approach, an insect report is planned to some document along with a related developer is planned towards the label from the document. Then, bug triage is converted to a problem of text classification and it is instantly solved with mature text classification techniques. Data reduction for bug triage aims to construct a little-scale and-quality group of bug data by getting rid of bug reviews and words that are redundant or non-informative. Within our work, we combine existing techniques of instance selection and have selection to concurrently lessen the bug dimension and also the word dimension. Our work provides an approach to leverage methods on data processing to form reduced as well as high-quality bug data in software development as well as maintenance. To find out order of applying instance selection as well as feature selection, we take out attributes from historical bug data sets and a predictive model was considered for a latest bug data set. Our data reduction can effectively decrease the data scale and get better the accuracy of bug triage.
