The Classification Tree Method is a systematic approach to test planning. This method transforms a problem specification into a set of error-sensitive, low-redundancy test case specifications. The Classification Tree Editor CTE is a tool to support the Classification Tree Method. CTE is integrated in the module/unit testing tool TESSY.
The Classification Tree Method addresses questions like
The objective of the Classification Tree Method is to determine a sufficient but minimum number of test case specifications. CTE originates from the former software technology laboratory of Daimler-Benz in Berlin, Germany.
