Model transformation for multi-objective architecture optimisation of dependable systems (2015)
Journal Article
Mian, Z., Bottaci, L., Papadopoulos, Y., Sharvia, S., & Mahmud, N. (2015). Model transformation for multi-objective architecture optimisation of dependable systems. Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing, 307, 91-110. https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-319-08964-5_6

The promise of model-based engineering is that by use of an integrated and coherent system model both functional and non-functional requirements may be analysed, implemented and tested in a rigorous and cost-effective manner. An important part of mod... Read More about Model transformation for multi-objective architecture optimisation of dependable systems.

Using program data-state scarcity to guide automatic test data generation (2009)
Journal Article
Alshraideh, M., Bottaci, L., & Mahafzah, B. A. (2010). Using program data-state scarcity to guide automatic test data generation. Software quality journal, 18(1), 109-144. https://doi.org/10.1007/s11219-009-9083-x

Finding test data to cover structural test coverage criteria such as branch coverage is largely a manual and hence expensive activity. A potential low cost alternative is to generate the required test data automatically. Search-based test data genera...
