Introducing Model-Based Testing

Model-Based Testing is a functional-testing management platform that enables quality engineers (QA) and business analysts (SMEs) to collaborate easily, and manage testing with optimal efficiency.

Get started

How do I use MBT?

To understand how to use MBT, read about the MBT lifecycle. This describes how to use MBT in your day-to-day work.

For details, see MBT lifecycle.

Initial setup

Before users can work with MBT, the admin needs to perform initial setup tasks.

For details, see Configure MBT.

Let's go!

To begin, create units to represent the actionable components of your model. For details, see Model units. You then combine units to create a model for testing. For details, see Models.

Advantages of MBT

Model-based testing is a software testing technique in which test cases are generated based on a graphical model that describes the functional aspects of the system under test.

MBT enables you to create models representing your application's business processes. You can link between the units comprising your model, and corresponding test scripts. You then generate test suites to test specific units based on your testing requirements, and run tests in a testing tool such as UFT One.

Working with MBT provides you with the following advantages:

  • Collaborate between application experts and QA teams.

  • Focus your testing on the most critical areas of the application.

  • Manage your test data and view automated testing results over time, in one central location.

MBT options: ValueEdge add-on and Stand-alone

MBT is offered in two SaaS packages:

  • MBT as an add-on to ValueEdge Quality SaaS. When using MBT as an add-on, you benefit from the full functionality of both ValueEdge Quality and MBT.

    This means that you can relate MBT entities (units, models, and tests) to Agile work-items such as features, user stories, quality stories, and defects.

    For more information, see ValueEdge Help Center.

  • MBT Stand-alone SaaS. When using MBT stand-alone, you benefit from the full functionality of MBT, as well as the Requirements and Defects Management modules of ValueEdge Quality.

    This means that you can relate MBT entities (units, models, and tests) to defects and requirement documents only. This is the only difference between the MBT package types.
