Background: The main objective of this paper is to review the literature about automatic test case generation. Test Automation methods involves the following major factors for generating test case such as Unified Modelling Language (UML) diagrams, Testing types like Black Box Testing, White Box Testing, Testing techniques like model based, search based and symbolic execution, coverage criteria includes code based, fault based and function based, UML and Automation Testing tools and algorithms. Suggestions and Conclusion: Test Case Generation (TCG) can improve the performance of the automation in an effective way and some open research problems have been discussed for bio-inspired algorithms. This paper presents a systematic survey about Test Automation by optimisation search techniques, by novel techniques and various other approaches. The optimisation search technique provides the best solution of the problem definition. Hence test automation using optimisation approach gives an efficient test suite for the given problem model. Test case Generation are applied for various software systems, hardware systems, embedded systems, real time systems, nuclear safety systems.
