Summary To apply model-based testing successfully and effectively, a complete, coherent and easy-to-read model of a system has to be constructed. If the model is incomplete, inconsistent or inaccurate due to human error, the corresponding test development becomes useless or even dangerous: the developers might rely on the test results that do not correctly reflect the actual system-under-test. In this chapter we discuss human-centred aspects of model-based test design, focusing on combinatorial testing. These aspects are implemented within a formal framework for combinatorial test design. The framework is called AHR by its core features: Agile, Human-centred and Refinement-oriented. The goal of the framework is to provide a human-centered iterative, refinement-based construction of system models and the corresponding test plans, as well as to supports reuse and refinement of the developed test plans at different levels of abstraction.
