Black Box – Worst Case BVT in software testing

In Worst case boundary value testing,  we make all combinations of each value of one variable with each value of another variable.

Worst Boundary value testing on 2 variables.

Suppose we have two variables x1 and x2 to test.

The range of x1: 10 to 90

The range of x2: 20 to 70

              X1 X2
Min1020
Min+1121
Nominal5045
Max-8969
Max9070

Figure: Testing points detected in Worst Case Boundary Value Testing.

Test cases:

 

Total test cases = A*A

25 = 5*5

A= Number of testing points.

These testing points are min, min+, nominal, max- and max.

We can generate 25 test cases from both variables x1 and x2 by making a combination of each value of one variable with each value of another variable.

These 25 test cases are enough test cases to test the input values for these variables.
