Tools for ART – Autonomous Real-time Testing

Bernet, M., Fehlmann, Th.M.

Just to make it clear: the focus on ISO 19761 COSMIC is due to the popularity of COSMIC when sizing embedded software. Any other sizing method can be adapted to the task of sizing tests as well, if allowing for a little imprecision due to lack of compliance to the VIM and the GUM.
The VIM: ISO/IEC Guide 99:2007, 2007. International Vocabulary of Metrology – Basic and general concepts and associated terms (Vocabulaire International de Métrologie – VIM)
The GUM: ISO/IEC CD Guide 98-3, 2015. Evaluation of measurement data – Part 3: Guide to Uncertainty in Measurement (GUM).
The VIM and the GUM are among the oldest standards that the world uses. In simple words: You can add & subtract measurements, like you can measure distance between several points in space, and get the total distance, possible after some trigonometric adjustments.
With COSMIC, measuring tests by measuring data movements is straightforward and easy. With IFPUG-like sizing methods, care must be taken not to double count elementary processes.
