Abstract

The method presented supports testing large complex systems. Testing large systems we have to solve the problem of system size in addition to the inherent test problem of how to determine a fault revealing test data set. The method is based on a scheme for construction dependent decom- position of the test phase into steps for mastering the size problem, and a framework supporting the choice of appropriate test data selection criteria and respective testability and coverage measures for mastering the test data selection problem. 1 Introduction Testing (based on execution and observation) still is a challenging issue in software and system development. It consumes much time, effort and re- sources, often without producing reliable statements about the quality of the product. One reason for this is that tes
