DRE (Defect Removal Efficiency

DRE is a measure to detect defects before delivery. It is calculated as a percentage of the defects identified and corrected internally with respect to the total defects in the complete project life cycle. Thus, DRE is the percentage of bugs eliminated by reviews, inspections, tests etc.

DRE (Defect Removal Efficiency )
‡ Every year companies around the world spend vast sums of money testing software, yet many have no idea of the effectiveness of this effort. Some use flawed metrics, while others find the measurement problems too hard to even attempt.

DRE (Defect Removal Efficiency )
The increasing emphasis on quality software has prompted the need for better software quality management using data driven and statistical methods. Various measures of development and released software quality have been created to make the process measurable, repeatable, and continuously improving.

DRE (Defect Removal Efficiency )
Defect Removal Efficiency (DRE) is one of the commonly used metrics for measuring the efficiency of defect removal at various stages of the software development life cycle. By extrapolating the DRE metric to released products, an organization can measure the effectiveness of their quality assurance process based on the number of defects found in the product before and after its release.

DRE (Defect Removal Efficiency )
The classic Defect Removal Efficiency (DRE) calculation has been successfully used to determine the efficiency of the defect removal process at various stages of the product development life cycle

DRE (Defect Removal Efficiency )
DRE(1) is calculated as follows:
DRE = Defects Identified during Dev. Phase Defects Identified after Dev. Phase

* 100

The value of the DRE is a percentage. The higher the percentage, the better efficiency is because it represents the timely identification and removal of defects at any particular phase.

DRE (Defect Removal Efficiency )
This calculation can be extended for released products as a measure of the number of defects in the product that were not caught during the product development or testing phase. Hence, the DRE calculation ( 1 ) can be modified for released products to calculate the Testing Defect Removal Efficiency (TDRE).
