Abstract

This presentation was part of the Seventh International Workshop on Managing Technical Debt, held in conjunction with the 31th International Conference on Software Maintenance and Evolution (ICSME 2015).

Recently, technical debt investigations have become more and more important in the software development industry. In this presentation, we show that the same challenges are valid for automated test systems. We present an internal quality analysis of standardized test software developed by ETSI and 3GPP, performed on the systems publicly available at www.ttcn-3.org.
