I read this blog regarding the MITI study and wondered, how many of you agree with that number? (40\%)
Here's a clip from the blog from Yuriy Zaytsev:
"Over 40\% of the quality problems with embedded products after shipment are caused by software errors.
leading cause of the quality problems with embedded products after
shipment was software errors (46.3\%), followed by hardware design
faults (21.8\%) and production faults (12.7\%). A trend over the past
four years is that the percentage of faults during product
conceptualization and specification continues to fall year after year.
Software errors have remained the major cause of quality problems for
the past four years.+ "
