Improving Risk-based Testing by Considering Requirements Metrics. Proceedings of the 8th Intl. Conference on Software Testing
Risk assessment is one of the main activities of risk management processes and an important task in any software development project (e.g., see [Boehm 1989]). Risk-based testing is about prioritizing tests based on product risks and therefore rests upon risk assessment. Based on this assessment, a test plan is derived, in which test cases are ordered in such a way as to exhibit failures that lead to the highest risks as early as possible. In this presentation, we first sketch an industrial usage scenario for risk-based testing. Then, we dis-cuss the benefits and drawbacks of existing approaches for realizing the risk assessment needed for risk-based testing. Finally, we introduce a technique for risk assessment that is based on require-ments metrics and discuss how this improves risk-based testing.
