ABSTRACT Software testing is too much important phase of software development life cycle and it is very expensive. Software testing is particularly expensive for developers of high-assurance software, such as software that is produced for commercial systems. It is well known that software testing is an important activity to ensure software quality because software quality is increasingly important factor in software marketing. When we test or retest the software then development organizations always desire to validate the software from different views. But exhaustive testing requires program execution with all combinations of values for program variables, which is impractical due to resource constraints. Test cases can be generated automatically for some of the applications by various testing techniques. But the number of test cases are very large and we have to reduce the test cases to test the software efficiently. Test case reduction method reduces the test cases that is not necessary for testing the software. In this paper, we will study Black box testing technique to generate the test cases and Statement coverage criteria for the reduction of test cases that will reduce time and cost spent on testing. Keywords: software testing, test suite reduction, representative set.
