This proposed technique investigates is for the reduction of the test suit with the use of metaheuristic approach this technique is known as genetic algorithm. The result is showing like with the help of regression testing we can reduce the size n cost of the test suit significantly the very important features of the test suit that we need to take in consideration is “test suit reduction”. Here we have uses the algorithm that is the combination of the test-execution cost criteria and block based coverage criteria, these new criteria with that we can make the prominent decision for reducing the test suit. Here for the test-suit coverage criteria other criteria such as risk or fault-detection effectiveness, or combination of this criterion we have used the approach is greedy algorithm that is the sub set selection problem which is NP complete.
