Risk Based Testing

Risk Based Testing

Risk Based Testing is a method for prioritizing the tests based on the risk of their failure because tester cannot test everything within available resource.

To use Risk Based Testing, we normally use following factor to prioritize tests:
- Usage frequency.
- Cost of failure.
- Impact module from change.

We should work closely with business and developer to get this information. We should do other testing techniques (e.g., black box testing technique, automation, regression testing) to optimize the cost of testing as the supplementary tool. After you prioritized the tests, you have to communicate to all of stakeholder about the risk from this testing project because of out of scope tests.

Risk-based testing (RBT) is a type of software testing that prioritizes the tests of features and functions based on the risk of their failure - a function of their importance and likelihood or impact of failure.[1][2][3] In theory, since there is an infinite number of possible tests, any set of tests must be a subset of all possible tests. Test techniques such as boundary value analysis and state transition testing aim to find the areas most likely to be defective.

Thanks for more information :)
