    Importance of QA (data)

    I'm looking for data to support how important QA is to an organization. One example of something is along the lines of, "cost of a defect discovered in development vs after being released to production". I'm having problems finding reliable data to show this. I've searched Gartner (the only site I'm really aware of and would love to find something there) and I can't find anything there.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Re: Importance of QA (data)

    The text book I'm reading (The Testing Practitioner) has a chart of relative cost of fixing a bug in various development stages. The chart originates from Software Engineering Economics by Boehm.

    Hope that helps.

    Actually the cost of finding a bug is usually much more than fixing it. That being said, maybe this will help you: Bug Cost

    Re: Importance of QA (data)

    My organization, Info-Tech Research Group, is currently doing a project on QA and we've got a survey to field. If you can fill it in while it's still in the field (over the next week) you'll get the results of the survey for free - it will certainly give you some numbers around how much testing folks are doing as well as the background of Analysts and testers. This will let you make your own conclusions around "how important" QA is to an organization. The more folks we can get in on this survey the more valid the data.

    Hi,
    Quality Assurance (QA) is the process of checking whether our products and services are meeting specified requirements. QA plays a vital role in an organization. The key factors of quality assurance includes the quality of the raw materials and devices, quality of the design and the skill level of the work force. I am using the quality management software in my organization which provides all the factors and it works much efficiently.

    For building quality in the products, monitoring and tracking is very essential. Another important thing is to ensure that we find the errors so quickly and address it. This will confirm the quality of your products. You can get more details from : https://www.unipointsoftware.com/blo...lity-products/ . I hope that you have got an informative idea and it will resolve your issue.

    Thank you
