Defect Removal Metrics
Defect removal metrics: concepts

\u2022All defect removal metrics computed from the measurements
identified last time
\u2013Inspection reports, test reports, field defect reports
\u2022Used to get different views on what\u2019s going on
\u2013Each metric can be used to tell us something about the
development process or results
\u2022Many are amazingly useful, though all have limitations
\u2013Need to learn how to use each tool effectively
\u2022For most defect metrics, filter out minor and cosmetic defects
\u2013Can easily make many metrics look good by finding more or fewer
cosmetic problems (level of nitpicking)

Measuring \u201ctotal number of defects\u201d
\u2022Many metrics have parameters such as \u201ctotal number of defects\u201d e.g.
total number of requirements defects
\u2022Clearly, we only ever know about the defects that are found
\u2013So we never know the \u201ctrue\u201d value of many of these metrics
\u2022Further, as we find more defects, this number will increase
\u2013Hopefully, finding defects in asymptotic over time i.e. we find fewer defects
as time goes along, esp. after release
\u2013So metrics that require \u201ctotal defects\u201d type info will change over time, but
hopefully converge eventually
\u2022The later in the lifecycle we compute the metric, the more meaningful
the results
\u2022If and when we use these metrics, we must be aware of this effect and
account for it.
