Augusto, J, Howard, Y, Gravell, A, Ferreira, C, Gruner, S and Leuschel, M (2003) Model-Based Approaches for Validating Business Critical Systems At System Testing and Validation Workshop, Netherlands. , pp. 225-233.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Developing a business critical system can involve considerable difficulties. This paper describes part of a new methodology that tackles this problem using co-evolution of models and prototypes to strengthen the relationship between modelling and testing. We illustrate how different modelling frameworks, Promela/SPIN and B/ProB/AtelierB, can be used to implement this idea. As a way to reinforce integration between modelling and testing, we were able to anticipate problems and guide the development of our software in a safer way, increasing our understanding of the sysytem and its reliability
