This research describes the initial effort of building a prediction model for defects in system testing carried out by an independent testing team. The motivation to have such defect prediction model is to serve as early quality indicator of the software entering system testing and assist the testing team to manage and control test execution activities. Metrics collected from prior phases to system testing are identified and analyzed to determine the potential predictors for building the model.

Mathematical equation that has p-value of less than 0.05 with R-squared and R-squared (adjusted) more than 90% is selected as the desired prediction model for system testing defects. This model is verified using new projects to confirm that it is fit for actual implementation.
