If you need to adopt risk-based testing in your organization, you can see my book Pragmatic Software Testing (Wiley) or some of my articles on risk-based testing in the RBCS Library. In any case, you should try to achieve a defect detection percentage for critical bugs that consistently comes close to 100%. You should carefully analyze any critical bugs that do escape to production, to see how you can improve your testing and catch such bugs in the future. Finally, not only should we find a sizeable percentage of the bugs, and not only should we find more of the critical bugs than of the less critical bugs, but we should also find bugs more cheaply than the alternative: customers and users finding bugs in production.
