Testing with Model Checker: Insuring Fault Visibility

Abstract

To detect a fault in software, a test case execution must be chosen so intermediate errors propagate to the output. We describe two modeling methods for specification-based mutation testing using model checkers that guarantee this propagation. We evaluate the methods empirically and show that they yield more useful tests than the previous "direct reflection" methods.
