As test generation and execution is fully automated, model based testing results in large amount of test results. Analyzing these test results remains a manual activity; the expert must conclude whether and how the system under test is incorrect. This can require a significant manual effort.

Similar to test case generation, we would like to reduce the manual activity in the testing process by having the computer aid in test analysis. For example, by grouping similar failures or finding patterns in failed test cases. This way, the expert can limit his attention to only the relevant results.

This topic can be taken into various directions. We expect students to explore a single approach that looks promising and evaluate it in a case study.
