Testing is a process which can be viewed as a complex system. There are techniques for reducing the level of complexity which come from ways of establishing multi-agent systems that have been discovered in the area of artificial intellect. The idea is that testing processes should at least in part be viewed as multi-agent systems. Different paradigms for organising testing processes become possible if many primitive agents are established and if operations and tasks are broken up into primitive units. This makes it possible to use available resources more effectively. The principles which are presented in this paper can gradually develop testing processes into more effective operations. We particularly focus on the organisational aspects of the testing process.
