Testing products in a cost-efficient way remains an attractive topic for Model-Based Testing (MBT) of product lines in both academia and industry, which can be addressed by employing systematic and automated approaches based on models (such as feature models and UML models). Cost-effective testing products can be divided into three main problems, i.e., test selection, test generation, and test minimization. Driven by the needs of our industrial problems for testing Video Conferencing Systems (VCSs) product line developed by Cisco, Norway, this paper presents Product Line Model-based Testing Methodologies (PL-MTM) to tackle the above-mentioned three problems for cost- effective testing a product in product line, which includes: 1) an systematic and automated test selection methodology; 2) an automated test minimization approach; and 3) an automated and systematic test generation methodology
