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 would save roughly 20% of testing cost, with 20% - 50% improved test coverage.
