Complete interaction testing of components is too costly in all but the smallest systems. Yet component interactions are likely to cause unexpected faults. Recently, design of experiment techniques have been applied to software testing to guarantee a minimum coverage of all t-way interactions across components. However, t is always fixed. This paper examines the need to vary the size of t in an individual test suite and defines a new object, the variable strength covering array that has this property. We present some computational methods to find variable strength arrays and provide initial bounds for a group of these objects.
