3 types of bugs

6 comments:

  1. Just a thought - if I would be sitting on that existing half of sofa (or on the sofa after sofabug is fixed) wanting to watch TV, TV set would be facing not the best direction, so I might classify it as "possible bug, type 3"

  2. Good observation Zeria. @mgaertne pointed out that the TV must be broken (so it's another bug) otherwise it would be showing the football while the World Cup is on!

  3. Hi Andy Glover,

    The above three generic categories of bugs are technically termed(as per the order mentioned in your cartoon)
    MISSING-->A specified or wanted requirement or functionality is not present in the product/application built
    WRONG--->The specification had been implemented incorrectly in the product/application.
    EXTRA--->A requirement incorporated into the product/application but that was not specified by the customers.

    Thanks

  4. Hi Ram,
    Thanks for the info. Where did you get your terminology?
    Not sure of I like using the last term. Some times the EXTRA requirements are critical must have requirements, but using the word extra makes it sound like a "would be nice to have" requirement.

  5. Hi Andy,

    These terms were referred from the CSTE CBOK.
    EXTRA category defects may be like as you said but everyone is having their own perception.

    Thanks
