Simple steps to improve your test automation efforts.
I will share the story of the company which made those changes and achieved very good results on test automation front.
In less than 1 year we:
1. Significantly increased the productivity of our automation developers and increased the overall coverage.
2. Tests stability was increased by more than 30%.
3. Overall test suite runtime was decreased from 3.5 hours to 6.5 minutes.
All of the above mentioned were achieved with the same number of resources.
I would like to share my experience and conclusions on the transitions we made. I believe that these simple principles might help many QA leads and managers to achieve better results.
