The purpose of defect tracking template

To ensure that the work product meets specifications for performance, defects must be tracked and fixed. These defects may arise from any Phase, but the majority will arise in the Testing Phase and must be properly captured and tracked through resolution. 

This form will allow documentation of test defects that must be corrected prior to project completion. Also, this form makes it easier to monitor status of the defect correction progress. This form may be used by any member of the software development team.
