Three Seasons of Test Automation: A Case Study

Russell Roundtree, Landmark Graphics and Mike Sowers, Software Development Technologies

This presentation makes the following recommendations related to automating testing: don't automate all of an application (seventy to eight percent); don't automate all applications (stable, long term); don't take a 3G approach for short term gain; if shelf life and maintenance costs are important, a 3G approach is best; insure proper roles are filled and people trained; have requirements before you start; have good access to data and test oracles; spend time in design to set the right level of granularity for the test cases and action words.
