Bug Free Software
Building Quality Software
The concepts of quality and bug free code means different things to different people. For members of QA, quality is defined as software that has a high degree of stability and value to the user. And the objective of achieving bug free code entails understanding that testing each and every outcome of a complex software system is prohibitive in terms of cost and time.
Instead a more realistic goal of QA is to achieve a balance between quality, budget and schedule. How this balance is weighed depends on the purpose of your software; mission critical applications require a higher level of quality (less bugs) with a corresponding impact on cost and development time.
