Arunkumar Khannur's Software Testing Knowledge Center

9.1. Overview

Requirements-based (Functional) Test Design, also referred to as Black Box Test-case Design (BBTD), requires requirement-based test design specification that would allow testing functional requirements of the system and also, special testing related to non-functional requirements. Here the test professional is expected to understand the high level design to analyze the challenges of a test design based on requirements, define testing techniques and know when and how to use the defined techniques from the functionality perspective of the system.

In this Chapter, we are discussing on basic Requirements-based Testing techniques: Equivalent Partitioning; Boundary Value Analysis; Input/output domain testing; Comparison Testing. In next Chapter, we discuss on advanced requirement based testing techniques; decision table based testing; state transition diagram based testing; use case based testing
