A Model-Based Technique for Test Program Creation


Key Points

Presentation Abstract

Software verification has become a bottleneck in the delivery of new communications products. Creating test content is the biggest part of the problem. Organizations that adopt an automated approach to test content creation will have a significant competitive advantage in the race to cover the glove with reliable communications systems. TestMaster offers a new approach to creating test content that combines a graphical specification, or model, of system-under-test behavior with an automatic test script generator. TestMaster customers report 80-90% improvements in test development time and productivity across a wide range of software applications and test execution environments.
