A frequent question that is raised in the software technology world is “How do I know if I have tested enough?” In this technological era, all companies must ensure that their software has minimal bugs and dependable in order to stay afloat. There are plenty of horror stories that can be cited where it is evident that sufficient testing did not take place sufficient testing did not take place, and the worst thing that could happen to a company would be to join the ranks of bankrupt businesses. The following displays a list of signs that you can apply to analyze if you should be investing more resources, time, or money towards your software testing.

1. Excessive Bugs in Production

An obvious sign that you should be investing more in software testing is if a lot of bugs are discovered in your released software. An even larger issue than just bugs that are found in production are bugs that have been in the software from early in development and have survived multiple test cycles. If bugs are not being discovered over a course of several test cycles, this implies that your testing is inefficient. It has been a proven fact in software testing that the earlier that bugs are discovered, the cheaper it is to fix them. If your software that is in Production contains bugs that have been in the code for a long time, you should consider not only investing more in testing, but also changing your testing methodology.

2. Bugs Discovered in User Acceptance

User Acceptance Testing (UAT) acts as a provision of confidence that the delivered software will meet the business requirements of both the developing company and the prospective users. UAT is one of the final stages of the development process before software is released to the customer, and is designed to merely deviations from the intended design. When bugs are discovered during UAT that are not just design flaws, you should consider investing more in testing.

3. Bugs Discovered by Customers

It’s never fun for others to find faults in your work, but it is even worse when those who find faults are customers who have paid for your product. If your customers are finding excessive bugs, you should consider investing more in testing, as bugs do not reflect well on your company, employees, or product.

4. Your Testing Investment is Below Industry Average

It is always a good idea to know what your competitors are doing. The same concept applies to the investment of software testing. If you discover that you are investing less in software testing than similar companies, you should probably consider investing more.

5. Your Testers Discourage Release

Always listen to your employees if they are raising legitimate issues. The value of a good software tester partially lies in comprehending their project and understanding the values of a well-tested application. If you are considering releasing your software and your software testers are telling you that they have not had enough time to test, you should consider investing more in testing.

6. You think Your Product doesn’t have Bugs

Let’s face it – during the development of a product, software will have bugs. As much as we hate to admit, mistakes will be made, and it can be difficult for a developer to foresee an issue in how they have coded their work. If you aren’t doing a lot of testing because you think that your software doesn’t have bugs, you are probably incorrect, and you should consider more in testing.

7. Your Testers keep Quitting

Happy employees tend to output better work, particularly if they have sufficient time and resources to complete their project. If your testers keep quitting because they are overworked and their time is stretched too thin, you should invest more in testing.

Of course, these are only a few of the signs that you should consider investing more in your testing process. There are many things to consider, such as investing more time, money, or resources, or even changing your whole process. However, these signs can be a good starting point for you to start contemplating your testing investment, and analyzing your unique issues.
