A Risk Based Testing Process
- Learn the steps and procedures in risk based testing.
- Learn how to identify, prioritize and evaluate system risks.
- Be able to assess the current quality of the system.
The approach of using risk based testing has become a widespread
technique in software testing. By using risk based testing you
can focus the testing effort on the critical areas of the system.
This presentation describes a process based on experience of
how to apply a risk based testing strategy.
The advantage of a risk based approach is to show the people
involved in the project where problems and risks in the system
might occur in advance. The purpose of
testing is to evaluate those identified risks. If no faults are
discovered the risks can be lowered. If faults are found the
risks can be lowered by conducting more testing in the risk
area and to make the designers correct the faults found.
The quality of the system can be determined anytime during
the project by looking at the current status and priority of
the risks in your risk list.
