Firefighting training simulations for testing code

I was watching this documentary about a new super cool firefighting training simulator, which was affordable enough that even small companies could use and that was very effective in detecting failures in firefighting procedures. Those failures, on real world situations, could lead to disasters, causing injuries and even deaths.

So, an idea stroke me: what if we did the same thing in software world?

I'll explain: most decent software companies now have a well-defined software testing process. But how can we detect problems on those testing procedures?
Let's say we stopped a bit every now and then to make a bug detection simulation.

One or two programmers would be responsible for intentionally introducing bugs that could cause a disaster. Only those programmers would know which bugs were introduced. The idea is making things fun, like a game, where those programmers try to break the testing process and the testing staff try to find those bugs as quickly as possible.

A summary of the simulation would be:

After finding (or not) the bugs and finishing the simulation, a few things should be assessed:

Hi Daniel, it's my first time that I post a comment in your blog.
Very interesting idea about firefighting simulator.
But I post this cause I would like to know how I can be a .NET architecht. I'm a beginner. I have your article "How to become a programmer" in my wardrobe. I'm following it rightly. But I want more.
I appreciate your information on software testing. I just bookmarked your site and will be back regulalry to keep on top of it. Please check out my blog on software testing exposed - I'd really appreciate it

Help me Dude, I'm lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw Elvis in the supermarket yesterday.

No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new plasmatv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a plasma tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger then I'm gonna go home and ask Michael Jackson to come round and watch that waaaay cool surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on my new plasma tv .

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)
