Categorizing faults in the software build cycle decreases the total number of faults
Very little is actually known about the types of faults that programmers insert into their software. It is becoming more important that these faults are classified into different categories. In this paper a review of a programming technique where programmers are required to categorize their faults at each iterative build of the software build cycle is described. Experiments were carried out that measured the number of faults at each build both using this technique and not using this technique. The data collected suggests that requiring programmers to categorize their faults during the software build cycle decreases the total number of faults in a program.
