Abstract

Modeling and abstraction is key in all engineering processes and have found extensive use also in software engi- neering. When developing new methodologies and techniques to support software engineers we want to evaluate them on realistic models. However, this is a challenge since (1) it is hard to get industry to give access to their models, and (2) we need a large number of models to systematically evaluate a technology. This paper proposes that search-based techniques can be used to search for models with desirable properties, which can then be used to systematically evaluate model-based technologies. By targeting properties seen in industrial models we can then get the best of both worlds: models that are similar to models used in industry but in quantities that allow extensive experimentation. To exemplify our ideas we consider a specific case in which a model generator is used to create models to test a regression test optimization technique.
