Title: Predicting Execution Time of Test Cases in the Safety Critical Systems
Level: Advanced
Description: Software testing generally suffers from time and budget limitations. Indiscriminately executing all available test cases leads to sub-optimal exploitation of testing resources. Selecting too few test cases for execution on the other hand might leave a large number of faults undiscovered. The process of selecting test cases for execution is a multi-criteria decision making problem. There are several criteria which can effect on the test case selecting process, for example, execution time, requirement coverage and cost. The main goal with this thesis is to predict the execution time of test cases and apply it with other criteria on a multi criteria decision support system. The thesis consists of a research part on how the required time for executing of a test case can be predicted before execution. Since manual test cases are written in natural text, we need to analyse different natural language process techniques for estimating the total execution time for a test case. The expected outcomes of the thesis are therefore as follows:
- A method for measuring of test case execution time
- Implementation of a decision support system for test case selection and prioritization
- Development of the analysis algorithms
This thesis is defined in the scope of the ongoing research projects at SICS Västerås in the area of testing which are performed in collaboration with different industrial partners such as Bombardier Transportation, ABB and VOLVO CE.
