project costs

We talk about the 5x rule involving the costs of defects in this article, but it can get much worse than 5x. Depending on when a defect is identified, the costs associated with correction, and worse yet, the revenue losses associated with that defect, can all mean the total amount can easily surpass the 5X quote. While we can hope for and hire the best developers in the industry, the fact remains that no one is perfect. That’s precisely why testing is a critical component in any software development project.
