  • Risk based Testing | Product Risk and Project Risk

    This article is going to be a complete guide to learn Risk Based Testing in Software testing.

    • Risk can be defined as “the chance of an event, hazard, threat or situation occurring and resulting in undesirable consequences or a potential problem”
    • This Testing uses risk (re-)assessments to steer all phases of the test process, i.e., test planning, test design, test implementation, test execution and test evaluation.
    Risk Based Testing


    A specific event that may cause and undesirable event to occur

    Risk Management involves

        • Assess what may go wrong
        • Prioritise Risk and decide what needs to be addressed
        • Implement controls to address the issues. In this lesson we will look at Project Risks and Product Risks followed by Risk-based Testing 

    Types of Risk

      1. Product Risks
      2. Project Risk

    Product Risk in software testing

      • Failure areas of the software or system (risk to the quality of the product)
      • The risk involved in software or system, the possibility that software or system may fail to satisfy end user/consumers expectations is known as product risk
      • It is also called Quality risks

    Examples of Product Risks are:

      • Failure prone software delivered
      • Tight Schedules, that make people work in a rush and commit more mistakes.etc
      • Potential that software/hardware could cause harm to an individual, company or environment
      • Poor software characteristics like functionality, reliability, usability and performance
      • Poor data integrity and quality for example data migration issues, data conversion problems etc
      • Software that does not perform its intended functions
    Testing can usually mitigate product Risks.

    Project Risk in Software Testing

    A risk related to management and control of the project that surround the project’s capability to deliver its objectives

    We can broadly categories project risks as below

    1) Organisational factors:

        • Skills, training and staff shortages
        • Communication Problems
        • Personnel issues
        • Political issues

    2) Supplier issues

        • contractual issues
        • third party Failures

    3) Technical issues:

        • Requirements not clear
        • Quality of Design and Code
        • Constraints
        • Test environment unavailability

    Project Risk are usually managed in an Excel Sheet (or Google Docs Spreadsheet)

    For each risk below information is required

        1. Risk Name & Description
        2. Risk Index – calculated by multiplying its probability by its consequence
        3. Risk owner
        4. Date of relevance
        5. Prevention Actions
        6. Contingency Plans
