Test design technique

What is a test design technique

A test design technique is: 

A standard method to derive testcases from a certain test basis to acheive a certain coverage

It is important to apply test design techniques when designing your test. Because of test design techniques, you can: 

  • Reproduce tests and test results because of the standard way in which test design and execution are described
  • A standard way of working creates independance of the test design and the person designing the tests
  • The standard way of working makes sure that the test specification is transferable and maintainable
