comment MTBF for a software product
I am not sure what you are trying to use the metric for, normally you would collect this data from the support function for server reliability or customer hardware failures. You would calculate from date usage started. Number of bugs is not the number of failures as one design issue could cause hundreds or thousands of physical devices to fail, like if say, it was a firmware bug that only occurred in rare situations.

comment Should automated tests be efficient?
You should try to ask questions that are not answers based on opinion, like, for example "How can I improve the efficency of my automated tests"

comment When is it OK not to have dedicated testers/QA team?
@testerab The manager is embedded into the team too, and a peer of the other manager. So there is no them and us, just different focuses.
