Modeling Software Defects Dynamics

Member Submitted

This model describes software code defect dynamics in terms of how test and development teams interact. The model also accounts for the different work regimes of both teams and other factors like size of the team, code quality, and software composition. Calculation algorithms and analytical solutions are presented in the paper. The proposed model and calculations present an effective method for analyzing software bugs.
