Abstract

A common situation in combinatorial models is one in which a model consists of several sub-models, combined into one. When combining such models, it is often the case that one wishes to separately compute Combinatorial Test Design (CTD) test suitesfor some of the sub-models, and use that result for the test suite of the large model. In such cases, full interaction coverage is not guaranteed unless restrictions between the sub-models are taken into account. This publication presents a method for guaranteeing full coverage when performing CTD in several phases.
