Abstract:

One of the key challenges in traditional testing method is testing activity being pushed towards the end of development lifecycle. As a result, the time given for testing is short but the expectation is to have maximum test coverage. In addition, late identification of defects in development cycle can result in major re-work and further delays. Based on these experiences, we have attempted to adopt Shift-Left testing approach, which is considered as one of the best practices in the industry. In reference to [1], the method is to perform testing earlier in the lifecycle, test early and often. [1] There are four methods of Shifting Testing to the Left. These are referred to as Traditional Shift Left testing, Incremental Shift Left testing, Agile/DevOps Shift Left testing, and Model-Based Shift Left testing. This paper explains the experiences in applying Model-Based Shift Left testing method.
