Bug Tracking

Bug tracking is a process applied by programmers and quality assurance personnel to monitor software problems and decisions through seizing, reporting and controlling data on bugs, which arise in software. The primary goal of bug tracking is to sustain high product quality through bug capturing tools and task management systems.

 

A bug tracking system is typically deployed to keep information regarding the reported bugs including the time the bug was reported, incorrect program behavior, bug severity, how to recreate the bug, individual who revealed the bug and the action taken by the programmers to fix the bug.

 

Automating bug tracking can help deliver a high-quality product, improve communication, connectivity and teamwork, boost return on investment by minimizing development costs, enhancing service and customer satisfaction and recognizing issues expeditiously and recognizing defect trends.
