Article Abstract

The need for human review often causes high costs for testing of graphical interface software. Some testers advocate combinatorial testing, combining strong fault detection with a small number of tests. This article compares combinatorial testing with the traditional method of exhaustive human testing. Fault detection is shown to be comparable for a more than twentyfold reduction in number of tests when combinatorial testing was used.
