uses of Static Testing

  • Since static testing can start early in the life cycle so early feedback on quality issues can be established.
  • As the defects are getting detected at an early stage so the rework cost most often relatively low.
  • Development productivity is likely to increase because of the less rework effort.
    • Types of the defects that are easier to find during the static testing¬†are: deviation from standards, missing requirements, design defects, non-maintainable code and inconsistent interface specifications.
    • Static tests contribute to the increased awareness of quality issues.
