Abstract

Warns computer users of the dangers they may face from the design faults that may be present in under‐tested software. Suggest that suppliers of software should be classified according to the level of maturity of the organization′s software development process. Explains the five proposed levels of maturity, providing an analogy for each stage which likens it to the stages in ability of a football team. Laments the current lack of commitment to testing among software developers.
