2-Factor covering designs, a type of combinatorial designs, have recently received attention since they have industrial applications including software testing. For these applications, even a small reduction on the size of a design is significant, because it directly leads to the reduction of testing cost. In this letter, we report ten new designs that we constructed, which improve on the previously best known results.
