Issues such as test case revalidation, test execution, failure identification, fault identification, modification dependency, fault mitigation and test case dependency are essential for an industrial environment in applying regression testing. Most of these issues are easy to address if one is dealing with small programs, but in a large software house where multiple large programs are being developed and maintained, they suddenly become complicated and costly. Some of these issues are also related to general software testing, however, these problems become acute in regression testing because test cases are repeatedly exercised in case of regression testing.
