I am Ram Reddy, M.Tech and 15 years of experienced manual testing Trainer and over 5 years on QTP trainer, I have trained more than 2000 people in this area since 1998. I have published so many books in software testing. I launched blog www.qtptesting.com for providing technical support for my old students and others.

System(Projects) that require testing the same functions frequently. Requirement not changing frequently Accessing the application for more load and performance with many users Study software with respect to manual testing Time availability What system should be automated? Unit Testing: Unit testing is in many projects a task which is performed occasionally by programmers during development of system. (Regression Testing) Anything that we need to do repeatedly, if we are repeating something a more than about 5 times and the elements in it are stable. We are automating web applications at the moment and automating the regression tests for end to end functionality has saved a lot of time. Stress testing is great to automate. It is often needed right at the end of a release cycle so saving a few hours has a big benefit. Functional Testing:Functional testing is the testing of how system or application functions, or, in other words, its relation to the users and especially to the rest of the system. Functional testing is implemented by a team of testers and Business analyst, independent of the developers. Another way of saying that functional testing is "the customer test" What should not be automated? Well usability testing is mostly done by clients so there is no need to automate that. It’s difficult to automate any tests with qualities or subjective results. The more binary the result the easier something is to automate. The functionality testing of the early releases of new products is difficult to automate effectively because the applications change so quickly. When moving across in to a new technology I like to tests manually as we learn about the technology and the application. This produces results quickly and makes it easier to automate later on if needed. 1 www.qtptesting.com Profile: www.linkedin.com/in/qtptraining How to system Automated?
