ISTQB® Certified Tester – Model Based Tester (CTFL-MBT)


Model-Based Testing is an advanced test approach using models for testing. It extends and supports classic test design techniques such as equivalence partitioning, boundary value analysis, decision table testing, state transition testing, and use case testing. The basic idea is to improve the quality and efficiency of the test design and test implementation activities. A focus point of the impact of MBT on the test process is process automation and artifact generation.
