Defect taxonomies collect and organize the domain knowledge and project experience of experts and are a valuable instrument for requirements-based testing, for several reasons. They provide systematic backup for the design of tests, support decisions for the allocation of testing resources, improve the review of requirements and offer a suitable basis for measuring the product quality. In this article, we present a method of requirements-based testing with defect taxonomies that exploits these advantages. We point out how defect taxonomies can be seamlessly integrated into a standard test process and discuss results and lessons learned with reference to industrial projects from a public health insurance institution where this approach has been successfully applied.
