Limited test time and restricted number of test resources confront test managers with big challenges, especially in the system test. Consequently, the test manager has to prioritize test cases before each test cycle. There is much information available for determining a reasonable prioritization order in software projects. However, due to the complexity of current software systems and the high number of existing test cases, the abundance of information relevant for prioritization is not manageable for the test manager, even with high effort. In this paper we present a concept for an automated prioritization of test cases using software agents and fuzzy logic. Our prioritization system determines the prioritization order which increases the test effectiveness and the fault detection rate.
