Defect must be tracked and fixed to ensure user specified requirement and performance. The defect may arise in or during any phase of software development, but majorly it is raised, captured and tracked in testing phase. Defect tracking template allows us to test defect and correct prior completion of product and also it helps to monitor status of the process.
It is used by any member of the software development team.
