Risk-Based Testing

Brief Introduction to Software Development ProcessBrief Introduction to Software Development Process

One of the rapid test technologies is aimed at determining the degree of risk and introducing appropriate policies and procedures for the use of risk measurement metrics. Throughout the project, a risk measurement metric should be applied in a completely uniform manner, in accordance with the provisions documented in policies and procedures. The risk measurement metric can be determined in the way shown in the table below.

In order to save costs and time on project development it is common to use third party software qa services provided by Ukraine.


For each subsystem of the final software product, the change control team is created to maintain, monitor, and approve versions in which individual subsets of fixed errors are eliminated and no longer exist. Organizations often maintain an error database that exists under the authority of the change control team, but is used jointly (with read-only access) by development and testing teams. The personnel of these teams correct and retest the errors planned to be removed in future versions of the final product. This infrastructure supports an approach to rapid testing based on risk assessment, which can provide a phased delivery of the end product to the customer. The infrastructure is also suitable for two software development partners geographically located in different parts of the world.


The IEEE Standard 1044 of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) establishes additional definitions, actions and processes during error tracking. Using this standard testers bear the responsibility for classifying the error during its detection (identification). The error reported in the test documentation is analyzed to determine its severity and is assigned the value based on risk degree (the effect of recognition).
