The Impact of Lean Techniques on Factors Influencing Defect Injection in Software Development

Abstract

In this paper we will focus on the impact that lean may have in preventing the injection of defects. We will research the impact of a number of lean techniques on defect injection factors. Date have been obtained from a single large Dutch governmental organization which has been using lean techniques routinely for more than three years. To investigate the impact of lean on defect injection we developed a survey which focused on the perceptions of the software developers of this organisation. The results suggest that the link between lean techniques and factors influencing defect injection is real and they explain to a certain extent the positive impact of the usage of lean techniques on software productivity.
