Many software testing problems involve sequences of events. The methods described in this paper were motivated by testing needs of mission critical systems that may accept multiple communication or sensor inputs and generate output to several communication links and other interfaces, where it is important to test the order in which events occur. Using combinatorial methods makes it possible to test sequences of events efficiently.
