Abstract: Software defects have a major impact of software development life cycle. Software defects are expensive. Moreover, the cost of finding and correcting defects represents one of the most expensive software development activities. For the foreseeable future, it will not be possible to eliminate defects. While defects may be inevitable, we can minimize their number and impact on our projects. To do this development teams need to implement a defect management process that focuses on preventing defects, catching defects as early in the process as possible, and minimizing the impact of defects. The purpose of this paper is to develop guidance for software managers in the area of defect management and to introduce the defect management model. This defect management model is not intended to be a standard, but rather a starting point for the development of a customized defect management process within an organization. Companies using the model can reduce defects and their impacts during their software development projects.
Keywords: Defects, software, defect management model.
