Defect Management Test Planning & Management

Defect Metrics | Severity, Density, Removal, Leakage, Cost and Age

In software testing, it is most important to measure the quality, cost and effectiveness of the project and the processes. Without measuring these, project can’t be completed successfully. The goal of testing is to determine if the requirements are met. During the course of testing, we find defects, or instances where the software does not meet requirements. Hence, in the area of software testing metrics, there has been abundant work in analyzing defects via different Defect metrics.
