Evolution and Expansion: A Journey Through Model-Based Testing (MBT) and Its Promising Horizons
Model-Based Testing (MBT) consists in using models for test purposes. MBT has been around for more than three decades and was mainly applied in testing embedded systems and communication protocols. With the maturity of methods and techniques, as well as the growth of tool support (in special, open source tools), the use of MBT has been extending to other areas in which test automation is necessary. This talk starts with an overview of MBT. Afterwards, some of our contributions in this area are presented. At the end, a discussion on some advances and perspectives in this area is given.
Eliane Martins has a PhD in critical systems validation using fault injection. She was for 25 years a Professor at the Institute of Computing of the State University of Campinas (Unicamp). She is currently retired and works as a Collaborating Researcher at the same University. Her areas of interest include: model-based testing and robustness testing of embedded systems. Recently her interests also include the use of MBT in agile methods.
