industry defect density stats
I'm looking to compare my defect densities (defects/KSLOC) against industry benchmarks.
Does anyone have some industry statistics on average defect density?
A breakdown by industry segment or organization maturity level would be nice, but general figures would go a long way as well.
The densities can be either pre-release, post release or both, as long as long as the means by which they were obtained are clear (so I can compare apples to apples)
The details for my projects are as follows: C++ and Java, Telecom/Call Center software space.
Any useful info or links would be greatly appreciated
Re: industry defect density stats
I do not know of any at the moment, i think i remember www.grove.co.uk having a talk about this and I am sure D.G. there was talking about a survey of these.
Having worked as a consutlant for a while now though I know this sort of data is not the sort of information most companies are happy to be in the public domain, even if the names are removed to protect the innocent [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
