    Re: what are the benefits automated testing?

    Do you mean other than doing 100% of your testing automatically, finding ALL the bugs in your AUT, fixing them all, and shipping your AUT to your customers 2 weeks ahead of schedule? Isn't that enough???

    ;-)

    What research have you done? What type of AUT do you have? How is your R&D / QA team structured? You need to provide a little more info for better responses.
    If this or any response has helped you, please reply to the thread stating that it worked so other people with a similar issue will know how you fixed your issue!

    Re: what are the benefits automated testing?

    The biggest benefit I would say allows development to take on riskier activities and give them better confidence in pushing the envelope. This can lead to implementing more ambitious features.

    Say you wanted to add multiprocessor support to an application 3 years old. Something simple like that ends up touching every single functionality in the application that was built over 3 years. In a manual testing only world, they go, "Oh no.. we're going to have to retest the entire app and do 2 years worth of testing.". In the automated testing world, "well, we got 1/2 of the important stuff automated. Maybe an additional 3 months of testing and we'll have 99.9% of the functionality covered."

    Although automated tests might be costlier than manual testing (automated tests need to be maintained just as much as product code, and you end up having more of it), but like code, automated tests have specific purposes and are consistent. You know what you have covered, and if those tests pass, you have confidence that those things are working. A good set of automated tests will give developers confidence that at least they know what they know has been automated wasn't broken. This can aid things such as late cycle refactoring, which normally will be an extremly risky activity.

    Everything can be automated to some degree. Of course some things have higher return than others. For example, automating testing of business logic will have higher returns than automating visual comparisons. In terms of time to fix and usefulness to development, unit tests (which points out flaws in the code itself) are more useful than acceptance tests (which act like gatekeepers of quality).

    what are the benefits automated testing?

    Reliable: Tests perform precisely the same operations each time they are run, thereby eliminating human error

    Repeatable: You can test how the software reacts under repeated execution of the same operations.
    Programmable: You can program sophisticated tests that bring out hidden information from the application.

    Comprehensive: You can build a suite of tests that covers every feature in your application.

    Reusable: You can reuse tests on different versions of an application, even if the user interface changes.

    Better Quality Software: Because you can run more tests in less time with fewer resources

    Fast: Automated Tools run tests significantly faster than human users.

    Cost Reduction: As the number of resources for regression test are reduced.
