In this article, we’ll discuss the difference between the Bug tracking and defect management, and after will look closely into the defect management process and the tools used for it.
Bug tracking vs defect management
A bug is a problem resulting from an error in the code which impacts software performance or functionality. Some examples of such faults include functional, compilation, logical, and runtime errors, missing commands, or inappropriate error handling. Bugs are discovered in unit testing by software testers.
A defect is a discrepancy between the actual and the expected result of software. In other words, it is any deviation from the specifications. Defects are solved by developers on the development stage.
