Code Coverage Based Verification (CCBV)

Submitted Feb 7, 2019

Quality Assurance is Verification & Validation.
Verification – Are we building the product right?
Validation – Are we building the right product?
With Agile principle in place, when we release a Minimum Viable Product to the customers, we get a feedback that helps us with validation. While validation is important and the core emphasis of practices like DoD, Acceptance criteria, System Demo.
What is equally important is we have a scientific way to verify that we are building the product right. Let us evaluate the relevance of code-coverage based verification at system testing. While code coverage is extensively used during unit testing phase, rarely do we use this technique at system testing.
Code Coverage Based Verification will help us accomplish
1. Test suite comprehensiveness
2. Reduction in technical debt
In addition to this, it will also help us with
1. E2E Requirement traceability matrix (RTM)
2. Regression test suite preparation


Current testing scenario → disadvantages with the approach → How can code coverage based verification help → advantages → challenges → way forward

1. The need for Code Coverage based system testing
2. How will it help me improve test suite comprehensiveness


  1. An open mind to discuss what was considered to be a unit testing related activity
  2. An understanding of how code coverage is used
  3. Instrumentation concept
