Brief biographical information


Towards Model Based Testing

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 system life cycle are expected to support the developer in finding the errors in an early stage of design and development. Automation of software development and software testing on the basis of executable models and simulation promises significant reductions in fault-removal cost and development time. To deal with the software complexity, current mainstream software engineering practices aim at raising the level of abstraction to visual models described in OMG’s UML modeling language. The new UML 2.0 is more impressive, it brings UML Testing Profile (UTP) that can be used for specifying test objectives, test procedures, and test assessment for software components or the complete system. The research focuses on developing model based test generation principles, model based test validation principles, a novel quality management/measurement approach for the evaluation of test models, a concept for automated consistency check between requirements, system models and test models.
