Each tester knows that a software bug is an incorrect operating of a particular function – in other words – the inconsistent in quality standards. But not everyone knows why these discrepancies appear.

During the mobile testing, web site testing or desktop testing a tester carefully documents and reports a bug it to the bug tracker. But a professional tester should also indicate the possible variants for fixing it. To offer a solution of the problem, the cause of its occurrence must be understood.

4 the Most Common Causes of Bugs in Software:

  1. The customer places wants developers to create specific software and after the demonstration of the work performed he requests some changes. Most of these changes can result a failure of the program, since some functions may conflict with others.
  2. The lack of communication on the project. During the system’s creation the customer and the developers are obliged to always keep in touch and discuss emerging issues at once, even at the early development stages.
  3. Programmers are ordinary people, even though they have extensive knowledge and skills in their field. There is always a human factor that can affect the accuracy of coding, that’s why the customer must resort to automated testing that ensures fast and effective verification of code.
  4. The most important factor of the bugs’ appearance is the complexity and multilevelness of the program itself. If the customer wants to release something like a multiplayer online game, or multiplatform application, he must take advantage of multi-platform testing, functional testing, load testing, and so on, because in such a complex systems pieces of code can be layered on top of each other, causing the derivation of bugs, or one part of the code may hardly interfere or interact with the other.
