What Are the Main Reasons of Bugs Occurrence?

  • Specification
  • Design
  • Code
  • Other

The biggest bug producer is specification. The matter is that very often there is no spec on the project at all – it is not written. Sometimes the specification is not created in a proper way (documentation testing has been skipped). In other cases the spec is constantly changed and modified during the development process, and it is difficult to understand the final requirements.

The spec should be well planned and formulated. In software testing field, planning is the essential factor of success.

The second large bug generator is design (the product implementation in code). The programming errors may be connected with poor documentation, the system complexity, the deadline pressure, etc. Sometimes bugs may occur because of testing errors.

Both the development and testing team should keep in mind one useful saying: ‘If you cannot say it, you cannot do it’.
