iSQI® Certified Model-Based Tester

Model-Based Testing (MBT) is a testing approach in which the software being developed is tested using automatic software test procedures, including models of system requirements and behavior.  The application of a systematic test approach improves maintainability, quality and efficiency of the test process because it supports testing at an early stage. Model-Based Testing is accepted by leading IT companies as an excellent method for organizations to deliver results of high 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.

The Special Interest Group MBT, brought together by iSQI, discusses methods, constraints, necessary tools, best-practice experiences and further possibilities to supply users with the required knowledge for the introduction of MBT at their workplace.
