QA Metrics Tracking:
Believes QA’s role is to verify requirements, not just find bugs, and provide metrics to leadership teams on the quality of their products
- MTTT – Mean Time To Test (Regression)
- DRE – Defect reduction efficiency
- Test Case Requirements coverage – Ensure test cases cover 100% of the requirements.
- Quality Metric – measures the number of bugs found during regression and compares to the bugs found on the live site.
