With only one quarter of US companies engaging in static testing, it’s an option too often overlooked. Opponents to the process correctly state that static testing is time consuming and can be expensive. But what they fail to recognize is that the return on that investment is far higher than any money presumably saved by not utilizing it. Static testing is not always easy, but fixing defects is far more expensive and time consuming when they are found later in the SDLC, such as when this early testing is skipped.
The cost of a defect found during traditional testing is about 10-20x the cost of one found in static testing. The reason is simple. It takes longer to fix a defect once it’s been coded into a functioning system.
