Summary:
Risk-based testing is reviewed and presented as a case study using it on a system test for a retail banking application with complex test requirements. Test documentation produced prior to test execution was kept to a minimum with responsibility passed to the individual tester. To support this approach, progress tracking metrics were used to track actual progress made and to calculate the resources required to complete the test activities.
