Introduction and objectives for Test Automation

This section provides an introduction to test automation explaining the objectives, advantages, disadvantages and limitations of test automation as well as technical success factors of a test automation project.

Preparing for Test Automation

Understanding the type of system is vital for determining the most appropriate automation solution and also how we can design systems and testing for more effective automation. This section also looks at how we can evaluate for the most appropriate tools.

The generic Test Automation architecture

A test automation engineer has the role of designing, developing, implementing, and maintaining test automation solutions. As each solution is developed, similar tasks need to be done, similar questions need to be answered, and similar issues need to be addressed and prioritized. These reoccurring concepts, steps, and approaches in automating testing become the basis of the generic test automation architecture, and this will be discussed in detail during this section

Deployment risks and contingencies

This section looks at the various risks associated with the deployment of test tools and how to avoid test automation failure.

Test Automation reporting and metrics

Providing information to stakeholders for them to make informed decisions about the quality of the software is a vital part of testing and this section looks at the various metrics that can be used to monitor test automation and what information should be supplied to the stakeholder and how it should be presented.

Transitioning manual testing to an automated environment

This section looks at the various criteria to apply to determine the suitability for automation and understanding the factors for transitioning from manual to automation testing

Verifying the Test Automation solution

To have justified confidence in the information we supply to the stakeholders regarding test automation we must have justified confidence in the test environment and test automation solution supporting the information

Continuous improvement

This section looks ahead and how we can improve the automation solution making it more effective and efficient
