Quality of software is dependent on various attributes such as testing, metric and prediction of bugs before deployment which will lead to effective maintenance. Software complexity and bugs again are interrelated. In this paper, the authors are making a comparative study of defect prediction mechanisms. They propose few design ideas for empirical prediction of defect decay. Their research direction will be triggered by the design ideas they are going to propose. They intend to propose a holistic model for correct prediction of defect decay.
