Model-based testing (MBT) is a testing approach in which the software being developed is tested using test design with models. MBT supports a systematic test approach and improves maintainability. MBT leads towards improved quality and efficiency of the test process. The approach also supports testing at an early stage.
Model-based testing is accepted by leading IT companies as an excellent method that helps organizations deliver the right quality. The benefits of this method are the possibility for deriving complete test coverage by a systematic approach communicated throughout to all stakeholders and a highly automated test process in an early testing stage.
A certified model-based tester is able to:
The certified model-based tester course is aimed at professionals in the area of software quality and software testing, preferably on the level of ISTQB® CTFL or with 2 years of experience in software testing: testers, test analysts, test designers, test managers (in relation to test processes and in contact with stakeholders) and managers.
The CMBT 2 days course discusses what MBT is and what the objectives and basic concepts are. The course also explains the benefits and challenges of MBT and how to integrate MBT in the test process. More in detail the course provides various examples of modelling and how to start writing a test model.
The course also discusses best practices for model-based testing. The fourth section of the course described how to implement MBT in an organisation. This section also includes a number of practical exercises.
