Software Testing Statistic

by j.wallace In reply to Software Testing Statisti ...

It's easier to do more testing on smaller projects, harder on larger projects. Considering all of the bugs that are reported and fixes that are necessary these days the big answer is "not enough".

Your question is much too broad. There are so, somany types and sizes of software projects.

If you take an "average" project, which takes N man-hours to complete, and limit the calculations to just programming and testing (leaving out documentation, marketing, training, etc.) I'd say the time spent on testing it is less 10%.
