    While the most basic form of combinatorial testing, pairwise, is well established, and adoption by software testing practitioners continues to increase, industry usage of these methods remains patchy at best. However, the additional training required is
  • Practical Combinatorial Testing   view details
    "Combinatorial methods can help reduce the cost and increase the effectiveness of software testing for many applications. ... With the NASA application, for example, 67% of the failures were triggered by only a single parameter value, 93% by 2-way combinations, and 98% by 3-way combinations. The detection rate curves for the other applications studied are similar, reaching 100% detection with 4 to 6 way interactions."
