Abstract
Software Testing is a formal process of checking whether a system or a product complies with the consumers need and requirement. It is mainly done by a dedicated testing team using different tools and techniques and the main intention is to identify deviations in the software product and to ensure quality. Testing is generally not done fully, instead it focuses on testing different test stages like Unit, Integration, System, User Acceptance etc., Testing also confirms with a product performance before launching it to the real world. It mainly prevents product failure or breakdown in large scale. The main goal of testing is to access the quality of the end product delivered to the customer. Testing life cycle focuses on different phases – Test plan, Test design, Test execution, Defect reporting and tracking it to closure etc., designing test cases based on requirements are the main building blocks of testing. This work is primarily focused during the test design stage of development. To write effective test cases in shorter time which identifies maximum defects is very crucial in testing life cycle. Effective test case sequencing or prioritizing the test cases based on criticality and risks is a key task of a tester. This methodology is to increase the fault detection at the earlier stage in testing. This prioritization technique organizes the test cases in sequential order in either ascending or descending order. This paper mainly focuses on effecting test sequencing identifying the right modules for testing during the planning phase and prioritize the same using OATS technique and application dependency structure algorithms
