Tool for Assessment of Testing Effort

Ilona Bluemke , Agnieszka Malanowska


Testing, being one of crucial factors in providing high quality software, needs a significant amount of resources of the whole project. Estimation of amount of expenditures required to test the software, called testing effort, would considerably facilitate the project management process. Early estimation of the test effort, e.g. during design process, can significantly facilitate project management and resources distribution optimization. We made an attempt to prepare such an estimate. The tool estimating time necessary to test the system, on the basis of its UML model, called IoTEAM, was designed and developed. The tool is based on two methods: mapping UML class and sequence diagrams into the results of Function Point Analysis and Test Point Analysis. The choice of those methods was preceded by a comprehensive study of the current state of art. Some results of this study are presented in this paper. The usage of IoTEAM is also described.
