With the time savings introduced by VectorCAST, final software development phases could be reached early, reducing the total project costs. A trial with VectorCAST was done in the project and, when compared with the previous approach, the usage of VectorCAST decreased in approximately five times the amount of hours required to achieve final coverage results.

Coverage using VectorCAST was performed over about 250 files, 800 functions, totalizing 20000 lines of manual code instrumented. As a result, an average of 85% of every manual code existing in the project was covered, with the investment of one engineer working for 150 hours.
