    Practice of HVAT in the Industry

    High Volume Testing(HVT) or latest High Volume Automated(HVAT) Testing is a term used for classes of testing techniques. For example random regression testing, state transition testing, etc are some of
    the classes that fall under HVAT.

    However, the industry does not seems to use them widely, I feel this is due to
    the cost and time consumption to carry these tests. However some scholars
    predict that these classes of test techniques has the potential to out perform
    some of the existing techniques and achieve higher reliability in software.

    Re: Practice of HVAT in the Industry

    It's always interesting to see what scholars think will be the next big thing, and then to contrast it to the reality we all deal with every day.

    Certainly, given unlimited time and money we'd all have fun playing around with new terms and techniques.

    Re: Practice of HVAT in the Industry

    Well, what do these scholars consider high volume?

    One group at MS runs 800,000 automated regression tests per day. I would propose that is pretty high volume.

    Automated state transition testing using a model based testing approach is also relatively common in large companies such as Motorola, Microsoft, etc.

    When we do API testing using random test data passed to API parameters we can literally execute tens of thousands of input permuatations per hour.

    Also, which test techniques are HVAT predicted to out perform? Where are the case studies?
