Comment My Bogosity meter is wiggling (Score 4, Informative) 489

I have some beef to pick with the article: 1. It alleges that CMM5 organizations have about 1 defect/KLOC. Having worked and knowing such organizations, I can anecdotally confirm numbers like these are fiction. CMM5 certification has more to do with greasing palms rather than any absolute defect measurement. 2. A defect rate of 0.04bugs/KLOC is not zero bugs/KLOC. The difference is infinite in magnitude if that single bug is -- kills the user. 3. Low defect rates are more often a product of poor testing, not superior development.
