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 […]

Articles about ROI of MBT

Dear all, Industry is adopting MBT … or is at least thinking about it. Thus, the return on investment (ROI) needs to be estimated, as described in a previous post. This post summarizes some of the articles about the benefits and costs of MBT that have been published recently. Interestingly, we found only little recent […]

Measuring MBT’s ROI

For managers and engineers alike, quantifying the efficiency of MBT is very helpful when adopting MBT for the first time; estimating the required time for MBT tasks; comparing different approaches and tools for MBT. Hence the working group TOOP/MBT of the GI(-TAV) did some research on this, published as cover story in the German journal OBJEKTspektrum […]

Book review: Experiences of Test Automation

Published in 1999, the book “Software Test Automation: Effective Use of Test Execution Tools” by Dorothy Graham and Mark Fewster probably still is one of the must-reads for anyone interested in test automation. Last year, a follow up was published by the same authors: “Experiences of Test Automation: Case Studies of Software Test Automation”, reviewed […]

Hi all, although we are convinced that model-based testing is the state of the art in test automation with great opportunities for quality improvement or test effort reduction, it is often hard to convince people to invest in this technology. Even teams that are convinced that this technology works find it hard to convince other […]

… is the title of the recently published book by Justyna Zander, Ina Schiederdecker, and Pieter J. Mosterman. This book provides an overview of the state-of-the-art in model-based testing for embedded systems. Consisting of 22 contributions divided into 6 parts the book covers the following MBT domains: key concepts for MBT test generation, e.g., automatic […]


I have a sense that the just completed MBT User Conference in Berlin will be a historic milestone.  Please take a few minutes to respond to this survey so we’ll have a datapoint to go with it. Thanks in advance, Bob Binder


It is well-known that model-based testing helps to comply to safety-relevant standards because it strongly supports code coverage measurement and traceability from tests to requirements, which are required by almost all safety-relevant standards. Additionaly, model-based testing is (highly) recommended by the IEC 61508 for the development of safety-relevant systems!! As a consequence, the whole discussion […]




Literature starter kit for MBT!

For those who already read tons of books, papers and articles on MBT this post may not be very interesting. But for the newcomers who need an easy start (i.e. knowing where to start reading), I have prepared a short list of publications on MBT.   Books   As you may expect, the basics are […]
