Abstract

Nowadays, software organizations have needed to develop excellent and reliable products. This scenario has helped to increase the relevance of quality assurance activities, especially the testing discipline. However, sometimes the time and resources are limited and not all tests can be executed, demanding organizations to decide what use cases should be tested, to guarantee the predictability of the project’s time and budget.The multiple criteria methodologies support decisions, considering many factors, not only professional experience. This paper presents a multiple criteria model to support the decision of selecting the use cases that should be tested.
