Defect taxonomies collect and organize experts' domain knowledge and project experience and are valuable for requirements-based testing. They provide systematic backup for the test design, support decisions for allocating testing resources, improve the review of requirements, and are suitable for measuring product quality. Researchers have devised requirements-based testing that exploits defect taxonomies' advantages. The taxonomies can be seamlessly integrated into a standard test process; the researchers successfully applied this approach to industrial projects at a public health insurance institution.
