We're going to implement a new field in our defect mang. tool to track the source of defects.
Some entries I was considering...
- 3rd Party: any 3rd party component
- Defective Fix: not sure about this one. more of a sub entry for Coding.
- Security: This code be under Coding too
- Software Configuration:
Any thoughts on this list. Is there a best practice list for defect source tracking?
As Ainars asks, WHY are they interested in tracking this? People don't track data just to have data. When they asked for it, you can be sure that there was a specific goal in mind. They just aren't telling you what that goal is.
