Significance of Education and Training During Software Development

Teaching and training provide people-based solutions to eliminate the source of software bugs[1]. Software practitioners notice for a long time that the human factor is the most important indicator in determining the quality and, as a result, the success or failure of the software products.

Teaching and training of professionals from the sphere of software testing[2] can help them in operating, controlling, and improving working methods. Such activities may also help to make sure that they have some, if any, delusions associated with the software product or product development.

The removal of these misconceptions will help avoid the injection of these types of software bugs[3] into the software program.

The efforts which are spent on education and training and directed to eliminate defects should focus on the following spheres:

Specific knowledge about product and application domain

If the people involved are not familiar with the type of product or application domain, there is a high probability that incorrect decisions will be met. For instance, developers not familiar with embedded software can design a system without taking into account its surrounding constraints, which in turn will lead to the wrong interface and problems with the interaction of software and its environment.

Knowledge of software development and experience play a significant role in the development of high-quality systems. For instance, lack of experience with technical requirements and product specifications can usually cause a lot of mistakes and rework in accompanying code, design and testing[4].

Knowledge of the methodology, technology and development tools can also play a significant role in developing high-quality software products.

Knowledge about the process of development

If the staff who works with Project does not fully understand the processes of the development, there is little probability that the process will be properly implemented. For instance, if staff involved in the additional software development does not understand how to put together efforts for various increments, the uncoordinated development can cause problems with the interaction or interface.
