The growing complexities of software and the demand for shorter time-to-market are two important challenges that face today’s IT industry. These challenges demand the increase of both productivity and quality of software. Early integration of test development into the system life cycle becomes more and more important, which helps the developer to find the errors in an early stage of design and development. A promising technique for the early integration of test development in system life cycle is model based testing that automatically generates test artefacts from design models. A major challenge of model based testing is the lack of methodological guidance, approaches, and a framework. My research aims to define a methodological guidance and a framework that facilitates model based testing which ranges from requirement specification, modelling guide lines, test generation from models, test management, and traceability of requirements to models and generated tests. In this paper, we define and justify the research problem and present a research approach.
