|Title:||Combinatorial Methods for Event Sequence Testing|
|Published:||April 21, 2012|
|Abstract:||Many software testing problems involve sequences. This paper presents an application of combinatorial methods to testing problems for which it is important to test multiple configurations, but also to test the order in which events occur. For example, the methods described in this paper were motivated by testing needs for systems that may accept multiple communication or sensor inputs and generate output to several communication links and other interfaces. We use combinatorial methods to generate test sequences which ensure that any t events will be tested in every possible t-way order.|
