Software engineering comprehends several disciplines devoted to prevent and remedy malfunctions and to warrant adequate behavior. Testing is a widespread validation approach in industry, but it is still largely ad hoc, expensive, and unpredictably effective.

Evaluation of test outputs is also associated with a considerable effort by human testers who often have improper knowledge of the requirements specification.
