Practical Combinatorial Testing: Beyond Pairwise
"Within the NASA database application, for example, 67 percent of the failures were triggered by only a single parameter value, 93 percent by two-way combinations, and 98 percent by three-way combinations. The detection-rate curves for the other applicati
Combinatorial Software Testing
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
"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."
