Parallelization to speed up MBT

In contrast to classical manual testing, MBT proposes generating test cases automatically from formal models. But the number of generated test cases can become huge, especially if the specification is large, the test case generation algorithm too simple (e.g. based mainly on randomization), or some coverage criterion needs to be achieved. Consequently, MBT needs to […]

Become a Certified Model-Based Tester!

Hi all, today, the first pilot training on the Certified Model-Based Tester (CMBT) was finished at iSQI in Potsdam, Germany. Fundamental knowledge about models, modeling taxonomies, test generation, process integration, and much more was covered. Though this was the very first prototype of the training, the quality of slides, presentations, and discussions was already very […]
