Need to improve quality assurance process to be more constructive and efficient?

  • Challenge: Testing if it is sued on an analytical approach just to verify the functionality of a given testobject at the end of development is expensive and should be reduced to a more constructive approach to avoid errors at the beginning of or during the development process. Furthermore, in many test processes there is poor understanding of the coverage and quality of the test.
  • Solution: MBT has the potential to support such constructive approach. MBT extensions shows, how to address and use this potential and to assure that the software artifact is build with a high quality even from the beginning of the project. The advanced systematics of a model-based test design compared to classical test design methods guarantees a well known understanding of the test coverage and test quality as well as means for defining and scaling the needed quality level of the test.

MBT certification – What are the benefits for professionals?

Business Outcome:
Effectively create and maintain MBT models using established techniques and best practices of model-based testing.

  • Problem: The quality of models is essential for a success of MBT in a given Project.  Many users do not have the knowledge to decide about the quality and therefore to have a criteria on hand to decide when the model is finished for a given task.

  • Solution: The ISTQB® MBT certification gives a practical approach to create MBT models and to assess their quality. It shows a perspective of the modelling paradigm as a process which helps people to correct their approach as soon as possible if it goes in the wrong direction.

Model-Based Testing Foundation Extension Syllabus will be published on this year. Stay tuned and follow our news on www.istqb.org

MBT certification – What are the benefits for professionals?

Business Outcome:
Apply and integrate model-based testing in a test process.

  • Problem: MBT needs process preconditions and prerequisites, that it can realize its full potential to improve efficiency and effectiveness of the test process. As long as this environment is not known and can not be calculated, people tend to avoid a new technology because of economic risks

  • Solution: The ISTQB® MBT certification shows which prerequisites are mandatory for a successful start with MBT. Furthermore it shows how MBT could fit well to specific development processes and what should be taken into account to adapt a development process for MBT.

MBT certification – What are the benefits for professionals?

Business Outcome:
Collaborate in a model-based testing team using standard terminology and established MBT concepts, processes and techniques.

  • Problem: Since MBT was born, many terminology were created and used which lead to inefficient discussion about what MBT really is, before any productive realization could start.

  • Solution: The ISTQB® certifications deliver a de facto standard for general testing terminology and integrated to that the terminology for model-based testing. This will make it much easier for users to start with MBT based on a common language within their organization

Why a Model-Based Tester certification at foundation level?

Model-based testing is an innovative test approach to improve effectivity and efficiency of the test process.
A model-based tester on a project uses models to drive test analysis and design, and keeps advantage of the models for other testing activities such as test implementation and reporting.
ISTQB® Model-Based Tester certification complements the core foundation level as a specialist module. It provides a practical and easy entry to the MBT approach.
