A major challenge facing the test team is how to achieve maximum test coverage without creating massive numbers of test cases. During this tutorial Huw Price will demonstrate how to slash test case creation time while radically improving functional coverage. During the tutorial Huw will reflect on the all too common practice of linking software testing only to requirements which often relies too heavily on the “gut feel” of the tester. Huw describes how software testing must become more like electronics testing by applying mathematical models to the creation of test cases. Huw will demonstrate how a more rigorous approach provides big benefits. The tutorial includes a review of current coverage techniques and a detailed explanation of path modelling and how it can be applied to the software industry. Join Huw to get maximum coverage in minimum time for your testing.
