Automated Test Design: Its Time Has Come
With model-based test design, you first create a high-level functional model of the system to be tested. The model is the input to an automated test generation tool that creates the test designs and associated test scripts. Recently available commercial, automated test generation tools are making automated test generation a practical and powerful alternative to manual test design. Antti Huima discusses the advances in modeling methods, test generation tools, and the implications for test design productivity, quality, and overall test process efficiency. He explains the differences between “modeling for implementation” and “modeling for test” that make model-based test design applicable to both new and existing systems. Antti uses real-world examples to demonstrate automated test design tools and presents the results achieved deploying these tools. Find out how your test organization can take advantage of automated, model-based test design-a paradigm shift whose time has finally come.
