Ideally, testing a SPL involves testing all the software products that can be configured through the combination of features.  ...  This, however, is intractable in practice since a) large SPLs can lead to millions of possible software variants and b) the testing process is usually limited by budget and time constraints.  ...  It solves the challenge of testing a SPL in the context of Combinatorial Interaction Testing by selecting the products which maximize the t-wise interactions between features.  ...
