How calculate defect density for BI reports
      #708750 - 06/04/12 07:20 AM

I need to define formula to calculate defect density for BI reporting project. Formula to calculate the defect density if NO. of defects/Lines of code. But in typical BI reporting project there is not lines of code and there are reports we get to test. Can anyone please suggest how to do it?

Thanks.

There are always lines of code.

You answered your own question. If your definition of defect density equates to the number of defects divided by the lines of code and # of lines of code exposed to you = 0, then most math I've seen cannot handle dividing by 0.

You guys need to stop blindly producing someone else's metrics and figure out what you're wanting to accomplish.
