# Thread: Using Boundary value analysis and tracebility matrix

1. ## Using Boundary value analysis and tracebility matrix

How to use boundary value analysis and tracebility matrix while performing testcases

NOTE : [This question was asked by pallavi, I am posting it in proper forum]

2. u r writing test cases u can user perticular fields.
and prepared input data for that field.

Tracebility matrics , after writing the test cases u will map the test case to Requirement. this means all the requirement is covered in the testcases or not.

hi!
It is a very good to get the correct answer
ThnX.

boundary value analysis is a technique to write and minimize test cases.

tracebility matrix is used to track progress.

Boundary value analysis is a technique used to validate the controls on the boundary. For example if a input has to be validated which can accept only the values from 10 to 100, then the test cases are written to validate the input box for on the boundary, above the boundary and below the boundary.
For on the boundary the input values should be 10 and 100 and the test cases should pass, for above the boundary, any values greater than 100 for which the expected result should fail and for below the boudary the values should be less than 10 and the expected result should fail.

Traceability matrix is done after writing test cases for a given set of requirements. Once the requirements are received, it is splitted into smaller parts for which the test cases are written. After test cases are written, the test cases are mapped against the requirements to validate that all the requirements are covered in the test cases.

Hi

Boundary value analysis is used to minimize the testcases

Tracebility matrix is used to compare the testcases with Requirements

7. ## Re: Using Boundary value analysis and tracebility matrix

Boundary Value analysis is a technique to test the boundaries of the program by giving valid and invalid inputs to a range value (like 10 to 20 - by giving inputs (9,10,20,21 etc) for testing at the boundaries of the range.

While Traceablity matrix is allows the tester to check and monitor- every requirement has atleast a testcase to validate the program.

BVA - Is used for writing test cases.
Traceability Matrix is to link the Test cases->requirements and viceversa.
