Software bugs are a direct indicator of software quality. Whereas competition and globalisation are fierce, introducing fewer bugs and detecting bugs earlier in the development process become one of the prior objectives of software organisations and particularly of automotive suppliers of car-embedded electronic modules. In this paper, we propose to improve the software testing process of an automotive electronics suppliers. Indeed, test cases are presently designed manually and depend on the experience of the testers. As software complexity grows, it becomes difficult for testers to imagine all possible combinations to be tested. Therefore, we propose to automatically generate relevant test cases for functional software testing.
