Perbandingan Pengujian Boundary Value Analysis, Equivalence Partitioning dan Error Guessy (Studi Kasus Indeks Nilai)

Johni Setiady Pasaribu


Software testing is a critical and time-consuming element of the software development life cycle (SDLC). Software testing determines the quality of a software before it is used by end users. The main goal is to find software errors or defects so that these errors or defects can be corrected in this testing phase. There are two general techniques for detecting software errors, namely: Black Box and White Box Testing. Black Box testing technique is used for validation, namely whether you have built the right software and White Box testing is used for verification, namely whether the software made is correct. This study aims to test the value index software using three methods of Black Box testing techniques, namely Equivalence partitioning (EP), Boundary Value Analysis (BVA) and Error Guessing. The testing process is carried out to find out how much error occurs in the value index software. The research method is qualitative descriptive and analytical. The results of this study indicate that the value index application has no shortcomings (error of 0%) both with BVA, EP and Error Guessing techniques.
