Does your Software Testing Pay?

“Does your Software Testing Pay” is another question (in the series we are addressing here) that comes up quite frequently. Although it may not be stated directly it can manifest itself in the following actions:
1. Lack of resources for testing.
2. Lack of time provided for testing.
3. Lack of suitable hardware on which to conduct testing
4. Lack of software testing tools.
5. …
This is not a comprehensive list but it covers many of the major manifestations of not having an answer as to whether the testing pays. If the question cannot be answered, then it is difficult to justify expenses or investment in testing. In addition, some Quality Assurance people go to great lengths to avoid answering this question.
Come back in two weeks to see one way of addressing this question. It will require research, metrics, and statistics.
