1.6. Need for Software Testing

We need software testing in order to find and report errors caused by lack of skills in human beings since every role is fallible; by bugs in system program like compilers, languages, databases, and operating systems. Also, some errors that are not obvious during reviews are easier to find during testing. We also do testing because we do not want customers to find them. In addition to this we initiate software testing in earlier phases of software testing. We also want to reduce rework time, especially, post release debugging which is very expensive.
