Testing Autogenerated OPC UA NodeSet Models for Product Variants in Industry

Authors: Claus Klammer, Thomas Wetzlmaier, Michael Pfeiffer, Thomas Steiner, Matthias Konnerth

Product line management activities have to ensure that offered product options are valid and compatible. With the arise of the Internet of Things (IoT) movement not only the own product compatibility has to be managed by the vendors anymore, but also the compliance and openness to standardized interfaces has to be supported as well. The Machine to Machine (M2M) communication protocol standard Open Platform Communications Unified Architecture (OPC UA) has received great attention in the field of mechanical engineering recently. In this industrial experience report we describe our approach how to support the testing of automatically generated models for OPC UA, by applying test case generation at the integration level. We show the feasibility of our approach and report about found issues, discuss some general findings and provide an outlook for future work.
