Test Driven Modeling: The Impact on Communication
Test Driven Modeling (TDM), especially the adoption of test cases supposedly has a positive impact on the communication between domain expert and system analyst. To investigate this claim, we conducted a case study in which the communication between the domain expert and system analyst is studied. In particular, modeling sessions with and without the adoption of TDM were performed. Then, the communication, i.e., conversations, were transcribed and coded. Below the collected data can be found.
