Abstract

We propose a test case prioritization strategy for risk based testing, in which the risk exposure is employed as the key criterion of evaluation. Existing approaches to risk based testing typically employ risk exposure values as assessed by the tester. In contrast, we employ exposure values that have been determined by experts during the risk assessment stage of the risk management process. If a given method produces greater accuracy in fault detection, that approach is considered more valuable for software testing. We demonstrate the value of our proposed risk based testing method in this sense through its application.
