Hypothesis Based Testing (HBT) is a scientific personal test methodology that is unique in its approach to ensuring cleanliness of software. The objective of HBT is to slash test costs/support costs, ease integration and accelerate development.
This handy guide provides a solid overview of what drives the six stages of the HBT methodology in eight short learning topics:
Introduction to Hypothesis-Based Testing
Stage 1: Identify Cleanliness Criteria
Stage 2: Uncover Potential Defect Types
Stage 3: Purposeful Categorisation
Stage 4: Complete Test Cases
Stage 5: Sensible Automation
Stage 6: Goal-Directed Measurements
Conclusion: The Six Stages of HBT
The central principle of the HBT test methodology is constructing a hypothesis of potential defects that may be probable and then scientifically proving/disproving them. It is not a process system; rather it is a methodology for an individual to deliver clean software.
