Test case prioritization techniques basically schedule the execution of test cases in a definite order such that to attain an objective function with greater efficiency. This scheduling of test cases improves the results of regression testing. Test case prioritization techniques order the test cases such that the most important ones are executed first encountering the faults first and thus makes the testing effective. In this paper an approach is presented which calculates the product of statement coverage and function calls. The results illustrate the effectiveness of formula computed with the help of APFD metric.
