Ok, great that you're getting into white-box testing.

A coupld of quick tips for getting a response (and probably a more detailed one than I can provide):
-What's the underlying language?
-What tools (if any) are already in place
-How much experience do you (or the folks who'll be doing the legwork) have?
-What methodology are you using (i.e. Waterfall, V, XP, etc)?

Without an answer to question number 1, I can't even guess at what's best for you.

The lowest hanging fruit is Unit testing.

Find a popular unit testing framework for the type of project you're doing. Implement a parallel project structure where for each source file, there exists a corresponding unit test in a /tests directory. Then modify the build scripts to also run the unit tests when the project is built.

From where work your way up. Some ideas you can try doing afterwards are..
* Modify your unit test execution task to execute your app using a code coverage tool.
* Setup a continuous integration to run unit tests upon code check in.
* Setup a Guard to continuously run unit tests locally for files being edited. (
