Abstract

The methodologies used in the market regarding pricing practices related to software testing activity are strongly based on empiricism, without the parameters and criteria that are widely accepted, what does not confer the due credibility in terms of time and cost for businesses. Despite the highlighted theoretical and empiric importance assigned to the field of software testing, in Brazil, investigations on the theme software testing estimation are still scarce. This article provides a literature review of the main academic publications in national and international circulation which focus on the study of how to estimate software testing, aiming at fomenting and guiding further national researches specifically dedicated to this thematic. The review has provided both the characterization of how to estimate software testing and survey of the main existing techniques.
