There have been long-standing debates among Quality Assurance (QA) specialists about the pros and cons of manual and automated testing, the difference between these two approaches, and the reason for that is quite logical: software testing is an important stage while developing an IT product. In Innowise we fully understand why testing really matters that’s why we provide on-demand QA web and mobile app testing services. We hope after reading this article, you’ll be able to decide which will do better for you in the confrontation “Manual vs Automatic testing”. Let’s have a talk about these two notions first of all.
The effective capacity of an app’s functional specifications is identified during software testing. It generally takes into account compliance, compatibility, accuracy, safety and relevance.
Now you are probably thinking why MT exists. Don’t underestimate it, as actually MT must be executed anyway before you go on to AT. It’s true that it takes a great deal of effort, however, there’s no other way to make sure that automated testing is not impossible at all.We prepared a list of tests impossible or hard to automate:
A QA Engineer analyzes how easy-to-use, convenient and handy the software or a product is for the end-user. In usability testing, an examination by a human is the essential component, so that’s why this type of testing should be executed manually.
In this case, analytical plus logical skills, knowledge, creativity, experience, and intuition of a tester are a must-have. Usually such kind of tests includes poor specification documentation plus you can’t afford to spend a lot of time on running. This scenario requires human skills and knowledge to conduct the tests.
There isn’t any “right” or “correct” way in this kind of testing. A tester doesn’t prepare any kind of plan and the system functionality is tested haphazardly, so the challenge for this case is to be as inventive and creative as possible, and do one’s best to “bring down” the system to find faults.
