On average, only 4 percent of projects begin with clear requirements, and this in turn accounts for 56 percent of defects. These defects are usually discovered late, during production, where it takes 50 times longer to fix them, compared to discovering them during the requirements stage. The rework caused by ambiguity in requirements is therefore a reason why 60 percent of software projects fail or over-run, and poor requirements in fact cause 82 percent of the total effort spent fixing bugs, and cost a massive $250 billion in waste each year.
Explore how model-based testing increases the likelihood that software will deliver more accurately on requirements first time, as it provides a set of Behavior Driven Requirements that are both clear, and complete. This ability to continuously deliver solutions in an effort to maximize their value to customers is further facilitated by the ability to quickly and easily respond to change.
