Abstract
Software development and testing of enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems demands dedicated methods to tackle its special features. As manual testing is not able to systematically test ERP systems due to the involved complexity, an effective testing approach should be automated, also requiring that the appropriate test data has to be provided alongside. In this paper we identify four main challenges regarding the provision of test data for automatic testing of ERP software: system test data supply, system test data stability, input test data constraints and test data correlation. Several possible solutions to these challenges are discussed. We conclude with an outlook to possible research activities.
