Automated Testing Can Not Replace Manual Testing.

Test Automation Strategy Is Often
Inappropriate.


Misplaced or Forgotten Test Types.


Wrong Expectations.


Missing Diversification.


Tool Usage is Restricted to Test
Execution.

Test Are Far More Often Repeated
Than One Would Expect.


If you think the test case will be executed more than
ten times, it will be a potential candidate for an
automated test

The Capability To Run Automated
Tests Diminishes If Not Used.

Automated Testing Can Not
Replace Manual Testing


Test automation often sets false
expectation that a simple and straight
replay of test cases detect the defects.


Good testers use their knowledge of
weaknesses in the development team
and in the technology to provoke
failures and detect errors.


Critique/Open issues


Easy to understand the strategies base
on the observations of the projects.


The scope of basic automatic testing
was cover in a precise range.


There was no need of great knowledge
of IT terminology to understand the
report.


Questions


Why test automation strategy is often
inappropriate?


When the test case will be a potential
candidate for an automated test?


Why automated testing can not replace
manual testing?
