We are interested in generating tests for duration systems modeling real-time systems. The specification of a duration system is given as a duration graph. Duration graphs are an extension of timed graphs and are suitable for modeling the accumulated times spent by computations within the considered duration system.
In this paper, we present a method for generating tests for duration systems based on the so-called approximation method. First, we use the approximation method to extend the specification model into an approximate model. The latter contains the digitization computations of the initial model. Test trees are then extracted from the approximate model. We explain how the obtained digital-test trees can be executed in an analog-fashion.
