Software Bug Averting Standards and Methodologies

Software Bug Averting Standards and Methodologies

Implementation of appropriate standards for the product and engineering specifications can also reduce the amount of bugs injected into the system. These standards provide the same level of understanding for all staff involved in the process of development and software testing, thus reducing the level of misunderstanding or increasing the probability of finding defects sources.

Such standards may take various forms. Standards can be used for the specific product, as well as for the whole internal organization of the company or they may have a commercial scale or they can be completely universal.

Coverage of the standards may vary from the used languages and application environments to the activities and processes of the development, documentation, etc.

Software Bug Averting Standards and Methodologies

Different software development methodologies, which have individual techniques built-in systematic frameworks, can also be helpful with error preventions. Such technologies may also lead to the increasing of the program.

A significant reduction of the observed errors and found software bugs can be largely related to a decrease in defect injection as a structured engineering methodology eliminated a large class of control flow defects.

Although object-orientation technology and related programming languages and technologies have recently been widely applied, they still have not received general acceptance, despite the appreciable improvement of quality indicators.

    While standardds are important, they are only part of the solution.

    To minimise the number of defects injected from early stages of the SDLC, an appropriate range of processes need to be in place to ensure the quality of what is delivered. These include but are no limited to:
    * reviews
    * sign-off/ approval of documentation
    * a culture of continuous improvement to identify areas that are not working and thus rectify them.
