  title={The AETG System : An Approach to Testing Based on Combinatorial Design},
  author={David M. Cohen and Siddhartha R. Dalal and Michael L. Fredman and Gardner C. Patton},
This paper describes a new approach to testing that uses combinatorial designs to generate tests that cover the pairwise, triple, or n-way combinations of a system’s test parameters. These are the parameters that determine the system’s test scenarios. Examples are system configuration parameters, user inputs and other external events. We implemented this new method in the AETG system. The AETG system uses new combinatorial algorithms to generate test sets that cover all valid n-way parameter… CONTINUE READING
