Specification Centered Testing

This position paper discusses a framework for automating the testing of systems with stringent structural coverage requirements, for example, avionics systems. The framework covers testing of the model of the desired behavior as well as the resulting implementation. We use a formal model of the required software behavior as the central component of our testing strategy; we call this approach specification centered testing. We discuss how a model checker can be used to automatically generate complete test sequences that will provide
