Introducing Risk Based Testing to OrganizationsDr. Rajesh Subramanyan
About the Topic
Risk-based testing (RBT) offers an exciting approach to cost effective testing by selecting features and functions to be tested based on priority/importance and likelihood or impact of failure. Risk based testing is not new, it derives from principles of risk management and FMEA techniques. For the testing community, techniques like boundary value analysis aim to find the area most likely to be defective, thus the tester is already selecting tests based on risks. RBT is useful to reduce the number of defects reaching the customer.
