There are many techniques to analyze the testing. They are:

  • One technique for risk analysis is a close reading of the requirements specification, design specifications, user documentation and other items.
  • Another technique is brainstorming with many of the project stakeholders. [Read more…]

What is Risk based testing?

Risk based testing is basically a testing done for the project based on risks. Risk based testing uses risk to prioritize and emphasize the appropriate tests during test execution. In simple terms – Risk is the probability of occurrence of an undesirable outcome.

This outcome is also associated with an impact. Since there might not be sufficient time to test all functionality, Risk based testing involves testing the functionality which has the highest impact and probability of failure.

Risk-based testing is the idea that we can organize our testing efforts in a way that reduces the residual level of product risk when the system is deployed. [Read more…]
