Abstract: Length and complexity of the software are rising day by day. So software testing is particularly difficult for development of high assurance software such as software that is produced commercial airborne system. Modified condition/Decision Condition (MC/DC) is an effective verification technique and can help to remove safety faults. This paper present new approach for test case reduction and prioritization that effectively use MC/DC criteria. In this approach we used weight concept for discarding weak test case and set priority.
Keywords: Test case reduction, Truth vector, Prioritization, Modified condition, Decision condition, Coverage.
