The idea of this "Interview Questions" forum is that you answer the question and get the feedback from others.

Well . . . icon_smile.gif . . . what's the origin of this question?

"Bug fixing" is a general term such as saying "I'm an Engineer", you can be a Software Engineer, Mechanical Engg., Civil Engg. or..so on..however, for the sake of discussion let's keep this to Software Engg. only . . .

Being an Application (Software) Engineer I can fix bug during the "testing" phase in my own code(there had been quite a discussion on "my code" recently icon_biggrin.gif ) and if I'm good enough with "Business and technical Knowledge" I can fix bugs in other programs as well. . .

On the other hand Production Support is a "designation" which necessarily does not mean "fixing bugs" only. . .

Hope this helps . . .
