Improving Evidence about Software Technologies: A Look at Model-Based Testing
A rich body of experiences hasn't yet been published on all the software development techniques researchers have proposed. In fact, by some estimates, the techniques for which we do have substantial experience are few and far between. When we started looking at the evidence on model-based testing (MBT), we thought we'd come across some strong studies that showed this approach's capabilities compared to conventional testing techniques-this wasn't the case. However, we can still extract some useful knowledge and also discuss some issues that are relevant to other software technologies with similar types of evidence.
