Statistical Testing


What is Statistical Testing (ST)?

Statistical Testing makes use of statistical methods to determine the reliability of the program. Statistical testing focuses on how faulty programs can affect its operating conditions.

How to perform ST?

  • Software is tested with the test data that statistically models the working environment.

  • Failures are collated and analyzed.

  • From the computed data, an estimate of program's failure rate is calculated.

  • A Statistical method for testing the possible paths is computed by building an algebraic function.

  • Statistical testing is a bootless activity as the intent is NOT to find defects.
