A snapshot of the summary - ISQTB Technical test analyst

  • 1 The Technical Test Analyst's Tasks in Risk-Based Testing

  • 1.1 Introduction

  • Who's responsible for a risk-based testing stragegy?
    The testmanager with involvement of the Technical Test Analyst.
  • What is the contribution of the TTA within the risk_based testing framework?
    They contribute their knowledge of the technical product risk that are inherent in a project, such risks as security, system reliability and performance.
  • 1.2 Risk-based Testing Tasks

  • What in which risk-based test tasks are TTA actively involved?

    • Risk identification
    • Risk assessment
    • Risk mitigation
  • 1.2.1 Risk Identification

  • What's the role of TTA within risk identification?
    Because Technical Test Analysts possess unique technical skills, they are particularly well-suited for conducting expert interviews, brainstorming with co-workers and also analyzing the current and past experiences to determine where the likely areas of product risk lie.
  • With whom does the TTA works together to determine technical risks?
    With other stakeholders such as:
    • developers, 
    • architects, 
    • operations engineers, 
    • product owners, 
    • local support offices
    • service desk technicians.
  • According to the ISO25010 which risks are mostly identified by the TTA?

    • Performance efficiency (e.g., inability to achieve required response times under high load conditions)
    • Security (e.g., disclosure of sensitive data through security attacks)
    • Reliability (e.g., application unable to meet availability specified in the Service Level Agreement)
  • 1.2.2 Risk Assessment

  • What's the role of the TTA within risk assessment?
    • In finding and understanding the potential technical product risk
    • and understanding the potential business impact of the problem should it occur.
    • proposes an initial risk level according to the guidelines established by the Test Manager.
  • Name a few generic project risks.
    • Conflict between stakeholders regarding technical requirements
    • Communication problems resulting from the geographical distribution of the development organization
    • Tools and technology (including relevant skills)
    • Time, resource and management pressure
    • Lack of earlier quality assurance
    • High change rates of technical requirements
  • Name a few generic product risks.

    • Complexity of technology
    • Complexity of code structure
    • Amount of re-use compared to new code
    • Large number of defects found relating to technical quality characteristics (defect history)
    • Technical interface and integration issues
  • Is it possible for an initial risk level proposal handed to the testmanager to be modified?
    Yes, when all stakeholders views have been considered.
