How much does it cost to be ready with testing?
In our research work we stumbled upon a question of monitoring whether the product is ready to release (Staron et al, “Release Readiness Indicator for Mature Agile and Lean Software Development Projects”, XP 2012). We could identify indicators which could show how many weeks to release the organization have given their testing and development speed.
In this article we could see a complement to our work since it presents a cost model for how much testing is needed to achieve a specific release pace. Interesting work, waiting to be validated in industrial contexts.
