1.11. Benefits from Software Testing

We can have many Primary Benefits from software testing that include:
  • A good test is one that has a high probability of finding an as yet undiscovered error.
  • A successful test is one that uncovers yet undiscovered error
  • The objective is to design tests that systematically uncover different classes of errors and do so with a minimum amount of time and effort

Secondary Benefits are:
  • Demonstrate that software functions appear to be working according to specification.
  • Demonstrate performance requirements appear to have been met.
  • Data collected during testing provides a good indication of software reliability and some indication of software quality.
  • Testing cannot show the absence of defects, it can only show that software defects are present.
