Automation - Effort Estimation
Right I am planning to automate a set of test cases and need to estimate the effort for automation. Is there any matrix or guidelines available for estimating the effort.
Re: Automation - Effort Estimation
Some say 5x the effort it takes to do it manually, others say 10x, with my favorite tool, I say closer to 3x. If you aren't an expert with the tool and want really good automated tests, maybe 100x.
Personal experience is your best guide.
