Model-based testing using process models for integration and regression testing of ERP solutions

  1. 1. Model-based testing for ERP ERP blueprinting Business process models BPMN, EPC, flow charts Visio®, Excel® test cases SAP® SolMan Test Workbench Process model-based automatic generation of end-to-end test cases for regression and integration testing of ERP solutions BPM-Xchange® for seamless interoperability and model transformation
  2. 2. Model-based testing for ERP solutions Solution blueprinting Automatic Tool-based end-to-end with BPM test case generation process testing  Microsoft Excel BPM or BPA BPM-X  SAP Test Workbench process modeling Test Case Generator  HP Quality Center tool  IBM RQM and others Generation of end-to-end scenarios (test cases) for  regression testing  integration testing based upon existing business process models www.bpm-x.com
  3. 3. Business process models from ERP blueprinting Zoom into details Attributes of activities, e.g. SAP transactions www.bpm-x.com
  4. 4. Why model-based testing?Costs Manual test case creation → high project efforts Traditional design of test-cases → blocks qualified and costly team members Insufficient integration testing → low production efficiency & high maintenance costsRisks Not all test cases are captured… …incomplete test cases → impact on production environment Untested scenarios & technical interfaces → failures in productive processes Untested changes of risk-related processes (e.g. SOX) → critical consequencesQuality Bad test coverage → low software quality → high business impact Incomplete matching of the test data → increases negative impact Insufficient reviews of work products & deliverables → negative impact is increased www.bpm-x.com
  5. 5. BPM-X generated deliverables and integrationBusiness process procedure HP Quality Center Integrate  Generated end-to-end test scenarios  Test cases with specific statement coverage SAP Test Workbench  Excel sheets per test case Generate www.bpm-x.com
  6. 6. Demo: existing process modelsSample BPMN business process model (provided in Visio® format): www.bpm-x.com
  7. 7. Demo: BPM-X Test Case GeneratorThe BPM-X Test Case Generator is a software operation of theBPM-X Converter: www.bpm-x.com
  8. 8. Demo: generated test cases in Visio® formatFor the test case generation the coverage algorithm has been set tobranch coverage, i.e. each business activity and decision is taken intoaccount.From the sample process model, these Visio®-based test cases have beenautomatically generated: www.bpm-x.com
  9. 9. Demo: generated test cases in Excel® formatAgain, the test case coverage algorithm has been set to branchcoverage. The test cases may either go into different worksheets of asingle Excel® file or into separate Excel® files.From the sample process model, these Excel®-based test cases have beenautomatically generated: www.bpm-x.com
  10. 10. Demo: upload test cases into SAP® Solution ManagerThe automatically generated Excel®-based test cases may easily beuploaded into SAP® Solution Manager: www.bpm-x.com
  11. 11. Value proposition for model-based testingReuse business knowledge to improve test quality and reduce QA costs Reuse existing business process models – not dependent upon the BPM/BPA tool or modeling language used Option to select different test case coverage algorithms: statement, branch, path, … Create deliverables as end-to-end models – Excel files and BPMN/XPDL models Identify ERP transactions, technical interfaces, input/output work products (data) for testing in a process flow Integrates with the SAP Solution Manager – Testing Workbench, HP Quality Center, IBM Rational Quality Manager, … www.bpm-x.com
  12. 12. Lessons learned about model-based testing Improve IT support of business processes and lower testing efforts Blueprinting Test case End-to-end the ERP solution generation testing Blueprint Generate Execute ERP test cases tests BPM-X BPM tool Test Case Test tool Generator Test data Process models Process models Test cases Test cases Test data www.bpm-x.com
