Project Risk vs Product Risk
What is the difference between Project Risk vs Product Risk?
Thanks in Advance,
Project Risk - Mainly focus on delivery issues
Product Risk - Mainly focus on functionality and technology issues.
Product risk is the risk which is associated with product or software system or application.When this product fails to reach the exact requirements or expectations of customers,then it is called product risk.
Project risk is the risk that is related with testing or with whole testing process cycle.The risk which is associated with testing process cycle of a project is called Project risk.
What is Product Risk
Product risk is the risk associated with the software or system, the possibility that software or system may fail to satisfy end user/customers expectations is known as product risk.
There may be the possibility that the software or system does not have the functionality specified by the customer or the stakeholders which leads to unsatisfactory software.
Unsatisfactory software has risk and has the possibility of failure which can cause major functional damage.
Low quality software can have many problems like functionality, reliability, usability or performance.
What is Project Risk
As we know that testing is an activity and so it is subject to risk which may endanger the project, so we can say that the risks associated with the testing activity which can endanger the test project cycle is known as project risk.
In order to deal with project risks we need to apply concepts like identifying, prioritizing and managing the project risks.
Some of the risks associated with project are:
Delay in the test build to test team.
Unavailability of test environment.
Delay in fixing test environment due to lack of system admin.
Delay in fixing defects by development team.
Organizational problems which can be like shortage of staff. Required skills etc.
Major changes in the SRS which invalidates the test cases and requires changes in the test case.
Product risk is the risk associated with the product or system, the possibility that product or framework might fail to fulfill end client/clients desires is known as product risk
As we realize that testing is an activity thus it is liable to risk which might endanger the task, so we can say that the risk associated with the testing action which can endanger the test venture cycle is known as project risk.
