Where no hard data is available, we use models and estimates to produce comprehensive data sets. A rigorous methodology is adopted, wherein the available hard data is cross-referenced with the following data types to produce estimates:
Manual testing is executed by a human who operates through computer carefully executing the test steps. Automation testing uses testing tools to execute the test case set. These tools demand considerable investments of money and resources. These tools record the test suite so that user can replay it if required. A manual test is very time consuming and may occur an error. Test automation overcomes these disadvantages. Test tool selection, the scope of automation, planning, designing and development, test execution and maintenance are the steps involved in automates the test. The test tool selection mainly depends on the technology the application under test is built on.
