T HE P ROBLEM Abstract—This Ph.D thesis proposes a testing methodology based on fault models with an encompassing fault model lifecycle framework.

Fault models have superior fault detection ability w.r.t.

random testing by capturing what “usually goes wrong”.

Turning them operational yields the (semi-)automatic generation of test cases directly targeting the captured faults/failures.

Each operationalization requires an initial effort for fault/failure description and creation of a test case generator, which is possibly domain-/test level-/application-specific.

To allow planning and controlling this effort in practice, a fault model lifecycle framework is proposed capturing the testing methodology.

It allows tailoring itself to processes used in organizations and integration into existing quality assurance activities.

The contribution of this Ph.D thesis is testing methodology based on fault models to generate test cases and a lifecycle framework for its real-world application in organizations.

Index Terms—fault model; fault based testing; mutation testing; test case generation; quality assurance; Weyuker and Jeng question whether existing test selection criteria are able to capture this distribution of faults and are worth their selection effort.

Good test cases (see section I) intuitively have superior effectiveness w.r.t.

random testing and thereby justify their derivation effort.

Thus, the problem to be addressed is: How to define a methodology for the derivation of good test cases and enable its integration into quality assurance in practice.

Assume there is a method to create an input space partition reflecting the distribution of faults.

By only examining this partition, all failure-causing inputs are revealed making any testing abundant.

Since finding such a partition is infeasible, an input space partition based on a hypothesized distribution of faults should be used.

The term fault model describes “what typically goes wrong” and has been used without a precise definition throughout testing research.

In literature, it describes (typical) faults/failures in specific areas of testing and is accompanied by adequate detection methods.

Precisely defining fault models and turning them operational would enable (semi-)automatic derivation of good test cases.


P RELIMINARY H YPOTHESIS A good test case detects a potential, or likely, fault with good cost-effectiveness [2].

Using a testing methodology based on generic fault models enables the description of classes of faults/failures by a higher order mutation that captures realworld faults and that hence does not rely on the coupling hypothesis.

By means of operationalization, this mutation is used for test case derivation instead of test case assessment, thereby creating “good” test cases.

Since the initial effort for operationalization is high, a fault model lifecycle framework enables planning and controlling the employment of the methodology.


P ROPOSED R ESEARCH A PPROACH The proposed approach consists of a formally defined testing methodology based on generic fault models [2] and a fault model lifecycle framework encapsulating the methodology to enable effort justification and integration into existing quality assurance activities within organizations.

Let a behavior description (BD) be any kind of program, system, requirements, architecture or problem description.

Formally, a generic fault model is (1) a transformation α from correct to incorrect BDs and/or (2) a partition of the input data space ϕ.

The transformation α is a higher order mutation and describes a class of faults.

ϕ describes a failure-causing strategy, which is either derived from α or an a-priori unknown set of faults causing a described failure.

An operationalization takes α and creates ϕ to subsequently derive test cases or takes ϕ and derives test cases without using α [2].

As an example, consider a program as instance of a BD.

In the first case, the program is searched for all elements y in the co-domain of α, which are the outcome of the mutation.

If found, an input space partition is created by ϕ such that all potentially failurecausing inputs executing the line of code of y are in one block and all other inputs are in a different block.

Test cases are only selected from the first block as they target y and represent good test cases.

If the creation of such a partition is infeasible, only II.

I NTRODUCTION One of the fundamental problems in software testing is selecting a finite set of test cases to be executed.

In partitionbased testing the input domain of a program is partitioned into blocks and a number of inputs are (randomly) selected from each block [2].

Random testing selects test cases from the input domain in a (uniformly) random way with negligible effort and thereby comprises the fundamental assessment criterion for test selection.

Any created test selection criterion should be more effective than random testing, if a selection effort is required.

According to a model created by Weyuker and Jeng more than 20 years ago [3], the effectiveness (i.e.

fault detection ability) of partition-based testing can be better, worse or the same as random testing depending solely on the partition.

They conclude that the efficiency is maximized when the input space partition captures the distribution of faults and test inputs are only selected from failure-causing input blocks.

E XPECTED C ONTRIBUTION The contribution of this Ph.D thesis is a testing methodology and generation technology based on fault models and an encompassing fault model lifecycle for integration into organizational quality assurance activities.

The testing methodology achieves a higher effectiveness than random testing by capturing and operationalizing knowledge of what went wrong in the past as well as results from literature.

To focus efforts on effective fault models, the methodology is encapsulated by a fault model lifecycle framework guiding the introduction, employment and controlling of fault model methodology in testing as well as other quality assurance techniques (e.g.

reviews and inspections).



Framework for quality assurance using fault models a code smell is reported.

If y is not found, the fault is mutated into the program to verify the operationalization is able to detect it.

In the second case, the input space partition is created by ϕ using an established and predefined failure-causing strategy based on past failures.

The layout of the created partition and the test case selection strategy are equivalent to the first case.

Adequate tools for operationalization are model checkers, symbolic execution or abstract interpretation [2] as they are able to create an approximation of the desired input space partition.

Thus, the operationalization yields a test case generator with smell reporting fallback.

In general, the proposed testing methodology is an instance of fault-based testing [1] and aims at showing the absence of the described class of faults or failures.

It also provides a stopping criterion, but does not aim to show any properties of the tested program such as correctness.

To enable the creation and operationalization of effective fault models and to justify the involved effort, planning and controlling activities are required.

While planning supports decision-making about the expected effectiveness of a fault model before its creation, controlling constantly compares the expected and actual effectiveness after operationalization.

The proposed fault model lifecycle framework (see figure 1) consists of planning (elicitation (1) and classification (2)), fault model methodology (description (3) and operationalization (4)) and controlling (assessment (5) and maintenance (6)).

During planning faults are collected (1) and organized (2) w.r.t.

the expected fault model effectiveness.

In particular, common and recurring faults described as fault models have a high expected effectiveness such that classifying faults with such a criterion appears reasonable.

During the employment of the methodology in quality assurance, the selected classes of faults/failures are described (3) and an operationalization is created (4).

The operationalization yields a test case generator, which can be reused according to its inherent type of BD, domain, test level and application.

To control the effectiveness, fault models are constantly assessed (5) and maintained (6).

The assessment is based on the question whether the fault model describes the intended class of faults and whether the test case generator generates good test cases.

Maintenance focuses on whether fault models are still effective and what other faults/failures should possibly be considered for the creation of further fault models.

There exist two feedback loops: One from assessment to classification in case a mismatch was evaluated and one from maintenance to description as well as elicitation in case fault models need to be adjusted.

Tailoring this framework allows its integration into existing organizational quality assurance.


S UMMARY OF RESULTS TO DATE In [2], a generic fault model is defined constituting the basis of the proposed methodology.

Furthermore, this thesis is performed in an industry project where I have already elicited and described common and recurring faults of the industry partner.

Currently, I am developing a first operationalization based on these fault models and plan to evaluate it shortly.


E VALUATION For the evaluation of this Ph.D thesis, the effectiveness in terms of fault detection ability as well as efficiency in terms of involved effort is to be evaluated.

I want to perform a case study comparing different existing test selection criteria with the proposed fault model methodology.

To evaluate the effectiveness, I want to analyze how many faults were found per method grouped by the class of faults.

For the effort, I want to compare the costs of the different techniques w.r.t.

time taken for introduction, finding a fault and controlling.

Both comparisons are to be performed multiple times in different domains, on different test levels and with different applications as I hypothesize the results to be essentially different when changing one of these influencing factors.


C ONCLUSION The aim of this Ph.D thesis is to define a test methodology based on fault models and an encompassing fault model lifecycle framework for practical integration into quality assurance.

The fault model hypothesizes about the distribution of faults in a BD.

By operationalization, good test cases are (semi-)automatically derived.

The lifecycle framework encapsulates the methodology enabling planning, employment and controlling of the methodology.

Thus, it can be applied in organizational quality insurance along with other techniques.

236 234 Quality Assurance Strategy for Distributed Software Development using Managed Test Lab Model Anuradha Mathrani School of Engineering and Advanced Technology Massey University Auckland, New Zealand [email protected] Abstract—Distributed software development is becoming the norm as it is considered a more cost effective way of building software.

Organizations seek to reduce development time with concurrent teams spread across geographical spaces as they jointly collaborate in designing, building, and testing the evolving software artefacts.

However, the software evolution process is not an easy task, and requires many iterations of testing for ongoing verification and validation with some pre-determined design quality criteria.

This is further complicated in distributed teams which interact over lean virtual platforms.

This study investigates a distributed environment spread across Japan, India, and New Zealand to inform on how managed test lab model (MTLM) is used to facilitate quality assurance practices for testing of the evolving artefacts within the overall software development lifecycle process.

The paper describes the operational aspects of using MTLM as an online framework in which responsibilities are assigned, test scripts are executed, and validation processes are formalized with appropriate use of toolkits to coordinate allocated task breakdowns across the three countries.

Keywords—test cases, test scripts, quality, distributed software development, software evolution I.

INTRODUCTION Distributed software development involves partnerships by software teams spread across inter- and intra- organizational boundaries who work together over virtual communication platforms.

Accordingly, shared project workspaces are created by managements to assist the partnering teams in operations, as they jointly collaborate online to build evolving software artefacts.

The software evolution process is not an easy task, as risks often relate to differing choices by teams in setting of design standards, quality governance issues, or liaison concerns, amongst others [1].

As software artefacts evolve, the teams go over many iterative cycles of designing, testing, and verification before the said artefact can move onto the next granular stage of evolution.

Quality processes in the product evolution process entail ongoing interaction between the company management and the developer teams during various stages of development in the product lifecycle.

Often the interactions go beyond rules, agreements, and exceptions specified in formal contracts between the partnering groups [2].

Further, in the case of distributed development, the interactions are over virtual infrastructural arrangements which connect all the stakeholders.

Typically communications over virtual platforms are leaner and less intuitive as compared to face-to978-1-4799-3312-9/14/$31.00 ©2014 IEEE face office environments, since virtual platforms are intrinsically text-based or at most may utilize VOIP media.

Software development is both a building and validating process, where various building blocks are integrated into software modules.

These modules evolve with ongoing rework as verification strategies are applied to uncover any hidden defects in the current software build.

During the testing or verification stage, the product operations are checked against a pre-determined criterion.

Importantly, this criterion lays out the quality measures for the said product, which are decided during the requirement gathering phase by customers and subsequently, during the design phase by the project stakeholders.

Thus, quality standards are not an afterthought but are laid out early in the development process or, as and when the customer identifies new requirements.

The requirements are translated into artefact deliverables and are interwoven into the whole software lifecycle process.

It is essential that all stakeholders have an unambiguous representation of the requirements, so that accurate interpretations are made in capturing and setting of the right quality standards [3].

This further lays out the effectiveness of test case/suite development.

The role of the testing team is to validate whether the software build adheres to the laid out quality specifications, and meets the end user expectations.

Thus, quality standards are not decided by the testing team, rather the testers analyze the build to provide assurance on quality and reliability status of the current build by confirming if the build meets the pre-determined criteria.

Studies that synthesize research and practice on migration strategies during software evolution process such as testing of software product lines are limited.

Current studies give a brief indication of quality assurance (QA) and testing strategies, which need further support or refute through empirical assessment such as formal experiments and/or case studies [4].

Software evolution process requires an environment or a “test lab” which has provisions for teams to review, verify, and validate the evolving artefacts with the agreed standards.

The notion of “test lab” also sometimes referred to as a “sandbox”, is to assist team members to confirm different aspects of the artefact’s functionality using a variety of testing techniques across various domains.

In this paper, case study methods have been employed to investigate how a shared virtual platform is deployed by development teams across three countries – Japan, India, and New Zealand.

We investigate how practitioners evaluate software modules and facilitate quality assurance practices in distributed software development using a managed test lab model (MTLM) environment.

In this era of new markets where distributed software development is becoming the norm, this paper illustrates how MTLM is used as a quality assurance strategy in the software evolution process.


CASE DESCRIPTION This study investigates the case of a leading software vendor referred as VNDR (pseudonym), having development centers in Auckland (New Zealand), Melbourne (Australia), and Hyderabad (India).

They have undertaken many software projects with clients in Australia, US, Japan, and New Zealand, where they provide design, development, testing and maintenance services.

This study is specific to a client organization CLNT (pseudonym) in Japan, who commissioned VNDR for their QA services for a flagship application, that is, its online invitation service (OIS).

The OIS application offers users an online system via internet and mobile devices to form groups and manage events, sound alerts and send invitations within or outside groups.

To facilitate QA activities, VNDR has set up a sandbox environment across the three countries for both development and testing teams to build and validate the evolving artefacts.

The sandbox referred by VNDR as Managed Test Lab Model has been customized with software tools to allow online interactions between development teams located in Japan, and testing teams located in India and New Zealand.

Further, the time difference between India (GMT + 5:30), Japan (GMT + 9:00), and New Zealand (GMT + 13:00), means that all the three teams have a time overlap during the day, so online communications over MTLM can occur at reasonable office hours during weekdays.

The MTLM has a steering committee comprising of top management from both organizations – CLNT and VNDR – who oversee the whole operations within the MTLM environment.

Fig.1 displays the organizational structure of MTLM.

The steering committee defines joint work tasks and Fig1.

Steering committee structure in managed test lab model responsibilities for the teams, which are conveyed through the project manager, quality manager and test leaders.


OPERATIONAL FRAMEWORK FOR MANAGED TEST LAB MODEL ENVIRONMENT Once the steering committee has defined work responsibilities, expectations, and scope of the QA activities to CLNT and VNDR teams, the MTLM operations can be initiated.

This is outlined in a formal document called the responsibility matrix, which defines all resources to be utilized (i.e., number of test engineers, testing techniques, skill sets), time frames of work undertaken by client and vendor (i.e., completion of testing rounds during various release phases) and lab test server settings (i.e., testing guidelines, user roles, user access permissions, server configuration).

Next, a detailed timeframe defining further project expectations from all parties is set up.

The MTLM is now made active, and during the first two weeks of initialization, targets are explicitly laid out within the sandbox environment.

The online configuration settings are tailored according to the project specifications to enable appropriate build instruments.

The sandbox is incorporated with software tools that are duplicated in the form of multiple variants to facilitate interactions amongst team members during development of parallel modules and to integrate different software modules [5].

The supplied MTLM environment by CLNT is equipped with a test harness comprising of testing tools such as Jira, Seapine, and AdventNet.

After the operational process is fully established, the next four weeks are spent in intense remote development and testing with suitable project management practices in place.

The MTLM brings in process visibility to trace each team member’s activities through the tracking toolkits used.

Both CLNT and VNDR teams are available online on all of the working days, as they perform various activities detailed within the scope of the QA document.

Each individual’s online/offline status is visible across all three locations.

The client’s project manager logs in tasks in the online platform using Jira and other bug tracking tools.

These are accessed by the vendor’s test engineers, who commence test case preparation immediately and post related task breakdown activities onto the online infrastructure.

The activities include test script/case development, generation and running of test scripts, performing code reviews and managing related testing services.

These services include tests such as functional, regression, user interface, system, integration, performance, and independent fault-injection black box testing.

The test cases are listed by testing teams for all of the application modules, and are logged in the bug tracking module, for further action to be taken.

A sample test case is shown in Fig.



Sample test case Program stubs and drivers are laid out between domain modules, and tailored as per the test harness requirements, to facilitate integration testing.

Tracking tools maintain log information of all bugs, files parsed or changes made, which are data-mined for statistical evaluation of the process, such as complexity of the project, defect density, and frequency of defects.

The data can also be linked to financial elements such as integrity of service effort hours billed by VNDR.

Past studies have stated usefulness of extracting data mining information to analyze defect features from the log files of testing toolkits to improve the overall software evolution process [6, 7].

These tools are eventually formalized by company managements to assess overall performance and compliance features for simple artefacts and also for the integrated module [8].

The status of defects are reported using testing tools (e.g., Jira), which are then subject to root cause analysis and impact analysis by reproducing and prioritizing the defects/bugs as critical or severe.

To and fro communication between CLNT and VNDR occurs on a daily basis until the bugs are resolved or a satisfactory outcome is reached, which is then updated on the bug tracking tool.

Also, a complete weekly report is posted in the lab documentation module, listing items such as percentage of test coverage, number of tests conducted, and effort hours, which are accessed by steering committee members.

Test guidelines are deployed on the MTLM online infrastructure, which must be adhered to by both parties.

The client’s project manager reviews the log files to see if security schemas are in place, ensures that all the bugs have been reported, and measures the overall characteristics of test suites.

The log files are discussed with the vendor’s quality manager, as they track bug dependency and check on the stability of the evolving software.

Test scripts are maintained in a test base suite and many rounds of testing occurs for all of the application modules, which include both automated and manual testing.


DISCUSSION Findings highlight that MTLM ensures a well-defined test architectural framework is in place at the offshore site.

The MTLM envelops both client (development) and vendor (testing) teams, as they jointly decide the scope of QA services and share test reports based upon statistical evidence of test suite coverage, defect resolution, and performance.

These assist management in gauging their confidence levels of the final deliverable, before it can be released to wider audience.

In this manner, clients mitigate risks of their product using third party services for testing, without being co-located.

Verification techniques are synchronized with development tasks to manage unforeseen dependencies in software evolution.

The concept of virtual and shared platform has been explicitly described in this study at the operational level with integration of managerial intervention, technical verification and validation of evolving artefacts, and simulated test lab environment.

Quality is an ongoing goal, and establishing an environment which allows top and middle managements to jointly facilitate verification and validation processes is integral to the software evolution process.

This means planning the test lab environment before execution of processes involved in the software development stages.

This further involves providing a robust environment with a test harness for execution of test cases/suites, ensuring the configuration management system is precisely set, and applying strategies for mining data to perform root cause analysis and measure performance.

Finally, the role of each personnel, whether it is project manager, quality manager, developer, or tester cannot be undermined and is crucial to making the managed test lab environment work.

Further, since the testing is conducted offshore in lower labor cost markets, the client has more cost savings, as compared to an onsite testing team.


3 extends Fig.

1, to illustrate how controls are applied in MTLM.

The controls include utilization of tools for managing work allocation, task coordination, and ensuring smooth project execution between VNDR and CLNT.

Moreover, the overlaps in office hours with staggered working hours between New Zealand, Japan, and India has the added advantage of having separate time for testing activities, and a shared time for discussing the results of the tests.

The New Zealand teams log in the lab environment at 8 am local time and run test scripts, the results of which are made available to the client teams when it is noon in New Zealand.

Later at 3 pm (New Zealand time), the Indian team starts their working day and also join the online discussions in MTLM.

Thus, each working day is extended across different time zones as different locations work cumulatively in the shared online sandbox environment [9], to identify, resolve and close any software inconsistencies.

CONCLUDING REMARKS AND FUTURE DIRECTION The study describes the use of Managed Test Lab Model as a quality assurance strategy for distributed software development.

Control mechanisms are deployed on an online framework for ongoing development and verification with appropriate toolkits to support the evolution of software artefacts and be better informed on quality processes.

Iterations of testing and verification tasks are linked to responsibility matrices outlining the nature of work breakdowns, work allocation against time and budget constraints, and for overall guidelines for coordinating development, verification, and validation tasks.

MTLM further lays out the process for analyzing test reports, status reports, and log files for identifying defects as soon as they arise to ensure no last minute compromises jeopardize the project schedules.

The files are jointly reviewed across locations to monitor the nature of testing activities and provide assurance on effectiveness of quality levels.

The transparency of testing activities in the MTLM approach provides a basis for future profiles in creating new test suites.

The vendor aims to extend the managed test lab model into future services by offering a Built-Operate-Transfer (BOT) model.

The BOT model will offer more services, where vendor aims to be involved with client application much earlier than the go-live stage.

They state that testing is an ongoing activity alongside software development, and if the managed test lab is used at the alpha or preliminary stage of testing, then the revisions to the software module will be minimal.

This way, when the product is being built at the offshore site, the vendor will operate alongside the client under the managed test lab environment and work towards a concentrated verification and validation strategy from the initial stage.

Any defects reported can be rectified proactively with proper code reviews, updates, or patches which can then be immediately transferred onto the managed test lab for further verification.

Therefore, testing at offshore site will be performed concurrently with software development, which will enhance productivity, reduce cycle times, and be more cost effective to the client, since operational costs will be confined mainly during the development phase, further improving resource allocation.

The vendor too can be involved in commissioning functional and compatibility testing during earlier phases of development before the system/integration testing phase is conducted.

Thus, the roles of developer and third party tester will merge, as they jointly share details during the built, operate, and transfer phases.

With the BOT model, the managed test lab model can be extended to cover the verification from an early stage in the software development cycle.

This empirical study has demonstrated a sandbox environment referred to as Managed Test Lab Environment involving senior management teams, developer teams, and third party testing teams.

Project development in the software development process is no longer localized to one geographical site, but has been extended to a global environment within appropriate technological configurations in place for confidentiality and security.

This study offers some guidance to policy holders on how value is added to the product evolution process through convergence of diverse group of stakeholders under one central testing sandbox environment.

However, a number of challenges remain, as balancing services and resources online across client and vendor teams is context driven and requires customized installations across the virtual platform.

Further, if either side is less cooperative, the test lab or sandbox environment may not result in adequate testing.
