Why Should You Attend:

According to industry benchmark data an average project that costs in the area of $1,000,000 will require something like 4,000 test cases. Roughly 20% of those cases are duplications of other tests – they reveal nothing new about the quality of the application.

Using the method discussed in this session you can expect to greatly reduce the number of redundant test cases, ensure important cases are not missed, and reduce the total number of tests required, and reduce total testing costs by 40%. We will also discuss case studies conducted by a major outsourcing firm that have shown the number of defects found per tester hour increased 2.4 times.

The method discussed in this session applies to all types of software testing.

Areas Covered in the Seminar:

- Background: “Design of Experiments”.
- Software Testing as an “Experiment”.
- What Are “Combinatorial” Interactions ? Why Do They Matter?
- The Business Case for Combinatorial Testing.
- Case Study: Amazon Checkout.
- Limitation and Caveats.
- References.
