Software testing is an integral part of software development life cyclewhich ensures the quality of the software. An exhaustive testing is not alwayspossible because of combinatorial optimisation problem. Thus, in the softwaretesting phase, generation of optimal number of test data accelerate the overallsoftware testing process. We identified that the reduction of interactions amongthe input parameters significantly reduces the number of test data and generatean optimal test data set. This interaction is known as ‘t’-way interaction. Overthe last decade, a large number of ‘t’-way test data generation strategies havebeen developed. However, generating optimum number of test data appears tobe a NP-hard problem where the test data generation time becomes significantlyhigher. This paper proposes an effective test data generation strategy based on‘Kids Card’ game known as MTTG. The proposed strategy significantly reducesthe test data generation time. The result and discussion section shows that,MTTG outperforms all other strategies.
