Many articles have been written discussing the optimal outcome of the test suite, test coverage, test progress, etc. however, not much have been written on the size of the test team. Since in modern companies the human resources can be the main bottleneck, this aspect is of utmost importance.

In this article the authors compare the efficiency of teams of testers and individual testers in finding defects. The also discuss the concept of the optimal test team.

Nice work, it would be great to see what companies say about this model.
