Software bug averting activities may be a very efficacious and advisable method to operate with quality assurance troubles by averting the infusions of errors into the software systems.

The main benefit of such activities is in the efficacious savings resulted from not having to operate with multitudinous software imperfections that would otherwise be injected without using these software bug averting activities.

Software Bug Averting Strategies

There are two common strategies for software bug averting:

Bug Source Elimination

Recognizing general bug sources and elimination them, thus averting fault infusions. Different techniques concentrated on software testing team and their product and procedure knowledge can be performed to eliminate these recognized bug sources, such as through studying and practice, process completeness and improvement aspects, and other activities mainly based on causal analysis of injected or potential problems.

Software Bug Blocking

Recognizing general bugs, which are determined to be missing or erroneous people actions, and blocking them to avert fault infusions. Different activities, such as following well-determined procedures, standards, and methods, or using proper tools, may be helpful in blocking recognized general bugs.

    I would call a defect a bug when it does not surface during development testing stages and gets noticed at the customer end during actual use of application developed/delivered.

    There are two major causes one that our test cases are not detailed enough and gap during regression testing as well as in-house deployment testing.

    I find that Agile ways of development method could capture most of the bugs, because here the whole application is developed in stages (sprint or release) with defined features and it is also delivered to the customer for their actual production implementation to get feedback (revelation of possible bugs quite early in the development life cycle i.e. at every part delivery) to make you correction and repeat testing for all the earlier part-deliveries during each subsequent part deliveries.

    This method also enables better customer satisfaction as during feedback of each part delivery he gets chance to tweak features in the subsequent deliveries.
