Key facts

Defect Management is a systematic process to identify and fix bugs.


Defect Report is a document reporting on any flaw in a component or system that can cause the component or system to fail to perform its required function. Defect tracking is the process of tracking the logged defects in a product from beginning to closure and making new versions of the product that fix the defects. Complex software systems typically have tens or hundreds or thousands of defects, so managing, evaluating and prioritizing these defects is a difficult task. Using of a defect tracking system can make the management task much easier.
