When to stop testing...

Quantifying software validation...

The article is probably the predecessor of modern statistical methods in testing. It postulates that statistics could help in finding out when to release. I would also like to point the attention that this article came out of Bell Labs, where maturity modelling - a way of statistical software quality modelling - has been practiced since the 80's.

I recommend this article as a starting point and a reflection point for the testing teams... can we build simple models that would show that we've reached the saturation point? What if we relate it to the previous blog entry - coverate metrics.... hmm... I'll try that in my next development project.

If anyone has more articles in this line - please do not hesitate to recommend them to me and I'll make sure to put them in the blog.
