What are the benefits of automation testing over manual testing?

The following are the benefits of automated testing:

Reliable: Most of the tests precisely perform the similar operations every time they run; hence human errors can be eliminated.

Repeatable: The software reaction can be tested under repeated execution.

Programmable: The sophisticated tests can be programmed, which bring out the hidden information from the application.

Comprehensive: Building a suite of tests which covers every feature in the application is possible

Reusable: The tests can be reusable on different versions of an application, even though the user interfaces changes.

Better Quality Software: More tests can run with few resources in very less time, which ensures the quality of software better.

Fast: Like any automation, the automated tools to run tests are significantly faster than human testing..

What are the benefits of automation testing over manual testing?

  • Automation testing is a faster and a comprehensive approach.
  • It can reduce the amount of manual work thereby reducing cost.
  • Automation streamlines software processes by following the same steps for a given test case to reproduce a defect.
  • Repeatability of testing can be improved.
  • Performance and stress testing can be performed easily which can be tedious if done manually.
