Requirements Based Testing
The most effective and cost saving way to perform system testing is to
base your testing efforts on the actual business and system
requirements. Ranch River Group utilizes a requirements based
testing methodology to increase the effectiveness of the testing process,
and to minimize the number of test
cases necessary to validate and verify the system. This
methodology employs such tools as validating requirements through decision
tables, data flow diagramming, requirements validation matrix, and
cause and effect graphing.
Requirements Based Testing significantly increases the effectiveness
of the testing process by increasing code and functional coverage.
This technique increases the efficiency of the testing effort by reducing
the number of required functional test cases up to fifty percent, by
better test targeting. Requirements Based Testing will help you
deliver systems with more functionality, faster, and with fewer resources.
Total development time is shortened, since testing can begin sooner in the
development cycle. Project resources are reduced by minimizing scrap
work and rework since errors are discovered much earlier in the life
