RISK BASED TESTING

RISK ANALYSIS

Risk based testing is procedure of giving priorities for features, functions and modules of application under test based on the impact of failures. It involves analysing risk based on the complexity, business criticality and visible areas.

Risk can be negative or positive.

  1. Positive Risks: It is referred to opportunities that help in business sustainability. For example, investing in new project changing new processes, developing new products.
  2. Negative Risks: It is referred as threats and recommendations to minimise or eliminate them must be implemented for project success.

The objectives of Risk based testing are:

  1. To know when and how to use risk based testing
  2. To understand advantages and disadvantages of risk based testing.
  3. To understand steps of implementing the risk based testing on appropriate application.
  4. To make risk free project using best practices in risk management to achieve a project outcome that balances risks with quality, features, budget and schedule.

Major processes to execute risk based testing are:

RISK BASED TESTING

 

Process 1: Risk identification: It describes all the requirements in terms of risk involved in the project. The projects encounter various risks which are recognised by the stake holders of the projects. These are mix of technical and business team.

Process 2: Risk analysis, Risk exposure using mitigations, Test policy– It prioritises the requirements in terms of risk assessment, once all the possible risks and their impacts are analysed the project manager will get the requirements prioritised. The priority requirements should be agreed and updated in the functional document.

Process 3: Test plan– Planning and defining the tests according to requirement priorities. When we get the requirement with the priority. We can start the test activities by keeping priorities in mind.

Process 4: Test execution & result– executing the test according to priority and acceptance criteria. If any of the identified risks realised by the test schedule time then there is a chance of schedule slippage by the development side.

Advantages of Risk based testing:

  1. Improved quality– All the critical functions of the applications are tested.
  2. Giving more focus on the risks of the business projects rather than the functionality of the information system.
  3. It provides the negotiating instrument to the client and test manager similar when existing means are limited.
  4. Associate the product risk to the requirement identifies the gap.
  5. Testing will focus on the most important matters first with optimal test delivery, limited time, money and qualified resources. We need to determine the better way to accelerate our testing effort with still managing the risk of the application under test.
  6. Improve customer satisfaction by customer involvement, good report and progress track.

  7. What are the types of Risk Based Testing?
    Risk based testing is of the following types:
    Positive Risk- This is a risk associated with adding new features to software, developing new products, enhancing business etc. These risks are worth taking for improvement of product or business.
    Negative risk- This is the risk associated with bugs in software, functionality errors, improper integration of different modules of software etc. These risks are to be minimized as to prevent losses.
    What is Risk Based Testing? Explain with an example
    Risk based testing is testing done based on the risk that may arise during the process of product development.
    Say we are creating a software for a bank, various positive and negative risks may arise. Positive risks could be need to meet the demands of the client, considering budget changes, infrastructure changes, manpower changes. All these are essential in order to improve business.Negative risks are bugs or defects in software, compatibility issues, functionality issues etc. These have to be identified and fixed as much as possible to sustain business.
    Risk based testing involves the following steps: Risk identification, Analysis, Test implementation, Test execution and results.
    Each risk should be well identified, its consequences good and bad must be analysed and a plan should be in place regarding protocols to be followed, a test should be in place to challenge the risk and a solution must be sought for the risk.

  24. Risk-Based Testing is a testing strategy that follows the principles of Risk Management but in a testing context. The main purpose of RBT is to use risk management principles for adequate testing. It provides a framework for clear communication and discussion about risks between testers, developers, clients and stakeholders. RBT will help you define terms and agree on a common language, and through this it will make risk visible and actionable for you. It also takes into consideration the big picture, as it covers customer needs and also the needs of the development team. It specifically uses risks as the input to support testing activities.

  25. What are the types of Risk Based Testing?
    Risk based testing can be – Positive or Negative.
    Positive Risk refers to opportunities that help the business grow and sustain – such as investing in developing new products or adopting new processes.
    Negative Risks refers to threats to the software and the steps taken to eliminate them.

    What is Risk Based Testing? Explain with an example
    Risk-based testing (RBT) is a type of software testing that functions as an organizational principle used to prioritize the tests of features and functions in software, based on the risk of failure, the function of their importance and likelihood or impact of failure.
    For example – clicking on a link that takes to to the next page is very low risk compared to an extremely high risk situation when one is transferring funds from one account to another.
    Risk taking ability also varies from industry to industry – such as pace makers and air control to financial and educational.
