A Quality Model and Checklists for Reviewing Automotive Test Case Specifications

Authors: Katharina Juhnke, Denis Neumüller and Matthias Tichy

Testing is the key activity in ensuring the quality of automotive systems. The corresponding test case specifications often contain test cases expressed in natural language. However, there is a lack of review approaches that are easy to apply for practitioners to ensure appropriate quality of those test case specifications. We therefore present an analytical quality assurance method based on a quality model and review checklists derived from it. Especially, we focus on quality criteria that are relevant for natural language test cases and in the context of the automotive domain. To ensure applicability in industrial practice, we stringently involve practitioners in the development of the quality model via expert workshops. The systematic derivation of quality characteristics results in a quality model for automotive test case specifications. Furthermore, we show how review checklists for a multidimensional review were derived from it. A first evaluation indicates that these review checklists support practitioners in conducting reviews and also foster the understanding of qualitative test case specifications.
