with known defects aren’t

done

and can’t be released, they’re partially complete work or
inventory, and they are waste too. If you’re using a defect
tracking tool you’re queuing up waste and you’re inspecting for
quality after the code’s been written.

software and block the flow of value to the customer.

Build
quality into the code

from the start by fixing defects as you
go. To help improve the quality of code, developers should use

test-driven
development

and testers should perform exploratory testing as
developers complete

. If a defect is found,

stop
the line

and fix it immediately. Don’t queue it up.
