When should u feel that u can stop testing now?..

Answer / techie

The following are few of the common Test Stop criteria:

- All the high priority bugs are fixed.
- The rate at which bugs are found is too small.
- The testing budget is exhausted.
- The project duration is completed.
- The risk in the project is under acceptable limit.

Practically, the decision of stopping testing is based on
the level of the risk acceptable to the management. As
testing is a never ending process, we can never assume that
100 % testing has been done, we can only minimize the risk
of shipping the product to client with testing done.
