Abstract

In this paper we present a new testing tool for safety critical applications described in Function Block Diagram (FBD) language aimed to support both a model and a search-based approach. Many benefits emerge from this tool, including the ability to automatically generate test suites from an FBD program in order to comply to quality requirements such as component testing and specific coverage measurements. Search-based testing methods are used to generate test data based on executable code rather than the FBD program, alleviating any problems that may arise from the ambiguities that occur while creating FBD programs. Test cases generated by both approaches are executed and used as a way of cross validation. In the current work, we describe the architecture of the tool, its workflow process, and a case study in which the tool has been applied in a real industrial setting to test a train control management system.
