Defect tracking covers all stages of a bug life cycle such as logging the defect in a defect database, assign that defect to respective developer, analyze the root cause of the defect, fixing the defect in the software, testing the new software, integrating the change in main stream software and performing the system testing to make sure the new change in the software to fix that bug hasn’t broken any other part of the code, final review and then closing the defect in the database. This complete process is called as defect tracking.
