Abstract

As the automobile industry has shifted to software, the Automotive SPICE standard has been established to ensure efficient product development process and quality. In the assessment model, the HIS Scope is the minimum standard for small and medium automotive electric companies to meet OEM requirements. However, in order to achieve the HIS Scope, the output of each process stage that meets the verification criteria of Automotive SPICE must be created. In particular, the test phase takes a lot of resources, which is a big burden for small and medium-sized companies. In this paper, we propose a methodology for creating test cases of software integration test phase based on UML sequence diagram, which is a software design phase of Automotive SPICE HIS Scope, by applying behavior model based testing method. We also propose a tool chain for automating the creation process. This will reduce the resources required to create a test case.
