comment MTBF for a software product
Ah ah... that's the problem. We got a request from a client to supply MTBF numbers, the request went through our long chain of command and was broken to pieces (many teams, each gives their number) so asking back what did they mean is useless. I also know that it's not uncommon for marketing people not to know what they are asking for...

comment what should I do if my stability tests cycle is longer than the release cycle ?
We can't do concurrent testing due to limited resources (isn't it always ?) of all kinds- testers, device, test equipment. The cycle can't be shortened much without loosing its significancy, it consists of several common use cases, each taking a day to complete. The problem is not efficiency.

comment MTBF for a software product
Wikipedia was the first place I read. Although their definition is probably correct it has holes in it- - Do I calculate up time on a single version or since the beginning of time? - Is number of failures equals number of bugs or should take into consideration the expected frequency of the bug ? - What if my up time is a collection of short runs ?

comment Is testing a product your company uses different than a product shipped to customers ?
"Good Enough"is really pain in the... I can only guess that when management knows that a bug will directly hurt their pocket they will not use this term.

comment How do you design your test method/function
+1 at the end of the day developers need to reproduce the bug, when I tried combinations of tests in order to reduce the number of total test cases (actually this applies to testing in general, not just functions testing) I got a lot of complaints from developers.

comment What are good guidelines to determine when to automate a test?
why not automate ? except for the obvious- a test that can't be automated (not uncommon in embedded systems) some reasons are: - the automated test is not the same as the manual test, for example using GUI events is not exactly the same as real usage. - automating the test requires too much resources, from people to test equipment or plain time - automatically parsing the results of the test is difficult, I once automated a complicated setup including a SmartBits machine, Wi Fi access point and several Wi Fi stations. Exercising it was easy, deciding a pass/fail result impossible.
