Genshyft Mid-Term Bug.png

The following formula is used by the team to calculate Bug Metrics:
1 x num (low) + 5 x num (high) + 10 x num (critical)

Severity Description

Typo error or small user interface alignment issues

High Impact (5 points)

The application runs. However, some non-critical functionalities are not working

Critical Impact(10 points)

The application is down or is un-usable after a short period of time. The team must stop development and fix the bugs immediately
