Software Bug Illustration

Accurately classifying the bug report ticket is important to manage a software support project. It guides resource allocation, prioritization, and ultimately, project success. Misclassification of bug severity, especially overestimating it, can lead to resource misallocation, where minor issues consume attention that should be directed towards more critical problems. It creates a 'cry wolf' scenario, where every issue is seen as critical, making it difficult to identify truly urgent problems.

The context-driven software testing methodology suggests for continuous and creative evaluation of testing opportunities. It is a testing way that conforms to the context of the project, more than applying a best practice. For context-driven, a good tester should ask as many questions as possible to reveal not only parts of the context but should know about the act of information.
