1. The ghost in the machine: Don't let it haunt your software performance measurements
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1830
Topic: Software Testing Metrics
Published: 4/28/2014
Authors: Vreda Pieterse, David W Flater
Abstract: This paper describes pitfalls, issues, and methodology for measuring software performance. Ideally, measurement should be performed and reported in such a way that others will be able to reproduce the results in order to confirm their validity. W ...

2. An Empirical Comparison of Combinatorial and Random Testing
Topic: Software Testing Metrics
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 ...

3. Estimating Fault Detection Effectiveness
Topic: Software Testing Metrics
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 ...

4. Introducing Combinatorial Testing in a Large Organization: Pilot Project Experience Report
Topic: Software Testing Metrics
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 ...

5. SATE V Ockham Sound Analysis Criteria
Topic: Software Testing Metrics
Published: 3/14/2014
Author: Paul E Black

6. Test Generation Using Model Checking and Specification Mutation
Topic: Software Testing Metrics
Published: 11/22/2013
Author: Paul E Black
Abstract: Although building quality into software is paramount, professionals find that testing is necessary to assure that the system will operate as desired. Developing tests can take significant resources. In 1998 NIST showed how tests can be automaticall ...

9. Of Massive Static Analysis Data
Topic: Software Testing Metrics
Published: 6/20/2013
Authors: Aurelien Michel Dominique Delaitre, Vadim Okun, Elizabeth Nee nee Fong
Abstract: Static analysis produces large amounts of data. The volume of data allows for new developments in research. Practical observations of the effectiveness of static analysis tools can be derived from that data. The question of tool statistical indep ...
