1. Introducing Combinatorial Testing in a Large Organization
Published: 4/23/2015
Authors: Jon Hagar, Thomas Wissink, David R Kuhn, Raghu N Kacker
Abstract: A two-year study of eight pilot projects to introduce combinatorial testing in a large aerospace corporation found that the new methods were practical, significantly lowered development costs, and improved test coverage by 20 to 50 percent.

2. Equivalence Class Verification and Oracle-Free Testing Using Two-layer Covering Arrays
Published: 4/17/2015
Authors: David R Kuhn, Raghu N Kacker, Yu Lei, Jose Torres-Jimenez
Abstract: This short paper introduces a method for verifying equivalence classes for module/unit testing. This is achieved using a two-layer covering array, in which some or all values of a primary covering array represent equivalence classes. A second layer ...

3. Combinatorial Coverage as an Aspect of Test Quality
Published: 3/31/2015
Authors: David R Kuhn, Raghu N Kacker, Yu Lei
Abstract: There are relatively few good methods for evaluating test set quality, after ensuring basic requirements traceability. Structural coverage, mutation testing, and related methods can be used if source code is available, but these approaches may entai ...

5. IT Pro Conference on Information Systems Governance
Published: 8/6/2014
Authors: Irena Bojanova, David R Kuhn
Abstract: Approximately 100 IT professionals participated in the 2014 IT Pro Conference on Information Systems Governance, held at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) on May 22, 2014 (www.computer.org/itproconf). Information systems gover ...

6. An Empirical Comparison of Combinatorial and Random Testing
Published: 4/4/2014
Authors: Raghu N Kacker, David R Kuhn
Abstract: Some conflicting results have been reported on the comparison between t-way combinatorial testing and random testing. In this paper, we report a new study that applies t-way and random testing to the Siemens suite. In particular, we investigate the s ...

7. An Empirical Comparison of Combinatorial and Random Testing
Published: 4/1/2014
Authors: Laleh Ghandehari, Jacek Czerwonka, Yu Lei, Soheil Shafiee, Raghu N Kacker, David R Kuhn
Abstract: Some conflicting results have been reported on the comparison between t-way combinatorial testing and random testing. In this paper, we report a new study that applies t-way and random testing to the Siemens suite. In particular, we investigate the s ...

8. Estimating Fault Detection Effectiveness
Published: 4/1/2014
Authors: David R Kuhn, Raghu N Kacker, Yu Lei
Abstract: [Poster] A t-way covering array can detect t-way faults, however they generally include other combinations beyond t-way as well. For example, a particular test set of all 5-way combinations is shown capable of detecting all seeded faults in a test pr ...

9. Introducing Combinatorial Testing in a Large Organization: Pilot Project Experience Report
Published: 4/1/2014
Authors: Jon Hagar, David R Kuhn, Raghu N Kacker, Thomas Wissink
Abstract: This poster gives an overview of the experience of eight pilot projects, over two years, applying combinatorial testing in a large aerospace organization. While results varied across the different pilot projects, overall it was estimated that CT wou ...

10. IT Risks
Published: 2/3/2014
Authors: Linda Wilbanks, David R Kuhn, Wes Chou
Abstract: Risk management is a common phrase when managing information, from the CISO to the programmer. We acknowledge that risk management is the identification, assessment and prioritization of risks and reflects how we manage uncertainty. These are some a ...
