User Feedback
Users have been very positive, and are applying ACTS to a wide variety of software.
  •   "At present I am working with a development team to enable automated testing of a complex 
    rating algorithm under development within a property/casualty insurance system. The system
    component under test accepts several hundred independent input variables which are used
    to produce rating factors as output.  I have had some opportunity to use [
    NIST-ACTS] as a
    means to calculate test coverage and identify missing test cases in our current population of
    test data. I'm pleased to report that the combinatorial coverage data has proven useful to us
    in identifying gaps. Eventually, I would like to use this data to extend our test coverage as
    well -- at coverage strength 3 we're producing a volume of test cases that should be
    manageable when paired with automated test data generation. I can also foresee other uses
    which would pair automated testing tools with [
    NIST-ACTS] output to improve our test
    coverage for other systems."
  •       "The tool is pretty easy to use, and has already reduced our planned number of tests by 20% or so."
  • "Nice... the XML configuration can be used for both CLI and application."
  •  "Our feedback on [NIST-ACTS] is extremely positive. The tool implement in a very efficient 
    way the algorithm of N-Wise reduction we were looking at. In fact, we would be interested
    in including your technology in our tool [ ]."
  •  "[NIST-ACTS] is a good application. It was easy to figure out and use. ... I would use this 
    application again."
  •  ""I've fund it intuitive and greatly helped to reduce the test size. I'll continue to use this tool at 
    next opportunity."
  •    "I think that [NIST-ACTS] has been very helpful in determining test coverage for simple test 
    cases with lots of variables."
  •  "  Not only does [NIST-ACTS] handle phenomenal combinatorial complexity without breaking 
    a sweat, it is also very easy and straightforward to use.   The user interface is very well thought
    out, intuitive, and delightfully uncluttered. "
