An Investigation of the Applicability of Design of Experiments to Software Testing

[article]
Summary:
Approaches to software testing based on methods from the field of design of experiments are a means of providing high coverage at relatively low cost. In this paper, the author investigates error reports from two large open-source software projects, a browser and web server.
