ROI between Manual and Automated testing
In our shop, we just initiated automation effort. To start with, we automated some 25 regression scripts that runs every month before a scheduled release.. Our schedule calendar is fixed for the whole year..
Now we are in the process of measuring ROI for this effort and want to publish these results every month to IT organization.
This to accomplish -
First and foremost - Are we really gaining due to automation both quantitatively and qualitatively ?
When will we break-even ? When actually returns start ?
To raise the awareness of automation across the organization so that managers can come forward to automate their stuff, if feasible.
See the attachment.
Since we ddidn't buy tools, that was not considered here.
Then, we want to show two ROI graphs one for Time to market and one for Effort between Manual and Automated testing..
Any of you guys do some thing like this ? If yes, can you share your experience or the items/charts you presented ? I am looking for some ideas to make it user freindly and at the same represents true facts.
