English abstract:
In Cyber-Physical Production System (CPPS) engineering for discrete manufacturing, the definition of test cases
is vital to ensure correct behavior of production processes and
to test risky cases. Unfortunately, the definition of test cases
requires know-how both from the CPPS engineering domain
and on software test automation, and is time-consuming. In
this paper, we investigate how domain experts can efficiently
derive test cases for an assembly process step from process
preconditions concerning product properties. We introduce the
Test Case Derivation for PPR Models (TCD4PPR) method building
on the Formalised Process Description and best practices from
software testing. We evaluate the TCD4PPR method with an
illustrative use case from industry in a feasibility study with
domain experts at a large production systems engineering company for discrete manufacturing. The main result was that the
domain experts found the TCD4PPR method efficient, usable, and
useful. The evaluation results indicate that investing reasonable
effort into modeling Product, Process, Resource (PPR) knowledge
with preconditions can considerably reduce risks of untested
production process behavior.
