How Should Boundary Value Testing Be Executed?

Software testing is a sphere in which all processes are well thought out and established. Each procedure promotes not only a certain goal achievement but also simplifies the other tasks fulfillment.

All processes are interlinked and depend on each other. Software testing company cares about all employees to work as the whole entire for the good of all collective and for the improvement of the prestige of the company itself. 

But the quality remains one of the most important success factors. In this case, this is about the quality of the tasks performance and, namely, about the different testing types fulfillment. An expert should be well acquainted with all stages of one or another testing type conduction.


Unit testing, system testing, integration testing or acceptance testing are well known to all specialists. But what about equivalence class testing or boundary value testing which is directly connected with the above-listed testing types? Not all testers are familiar with their performance procedure.

What Are the Boundary Value Testing Steps?

  • To define the equivalence classes.
  • To specify the boundary values in each equivalence class.
  • To create the test cases for each boundary value checking. Apart from direct boundary value, one should also test the values by an order of magnitude more and less than the boundary one. It is important to monitor that the input data of the test cases do not repeat. The test cases duplication is a waste of time.

As well as automated testing, boundary value testing has many pluses. It significantly reduces the number of test cases needed for the product checking. Many covered bugs can be detected with the help of boundary value testing.
