Test Case Prioritization Using Multi Criteria Decision Making Methods

Publication Type:

Article, research overeview


Danish Society for Operations Research


The lack of a systematic approach to decision making might leads to a non-optimal usage of resources. Nowadays, the real world decision making problems are multiple criteria, complex, large scale and generally consist of uncertainty and vagueness. Multiple-criteria decision making (MCDM) is a subset of operations research and is divided into Multi-Objective Decision Making (MODM) and Multi-Attribute Decision Making (MADM). The principal objective of the present article is proposing a systematic multi-criteria design making approach in the area of software testing that will be exemplified by an industrial example.
