Transformation towards Test Automation
  • Researcher: Nils Wild
  • Time: 2020 – ongoing

Test automation is a central requirement in DevOps, which many companies adopt to increase the quality of their products and reduce the time to market. Despite the efforts, most companies still rely on manual testing to assess the functionality of their products. Besides the time to automate Tests, expertise is needed to design suitable test cases and to achieve the necessary testability of the products and automatability for the test cases. On the one hand, this requires a definition of testability and factors that hinder and promote it. On the other hand, testability does not guarantee automatability. This must be considered as well. Enabling these features of the software and the transformation of manual tests into automated tests can be considered as refactoring tasks.
