The Development of Reliable Estimation Methods for the Usage of Test Automation in an Agile Environment

Authors:
Jos van Rooyen

Keywords: Test Automation; Agile; Testing; Return on Investment; Future proof

Abstract:
One way to ensure the quality of software is by testing it. Running tests can be done both manually and automatically. Test automation, with its ups and downs, has been the centre of attention for many years. It is usually underestimated what implementing test automation entails and the impact it has on an organization, especially the estimation of the required effort. Adding test automation within the entire range of testing measures requires extra human capacity, both for the initial set up and the maintenance of the automatized tests apart from test implementation. The question is how much human capacity is needed in order to test automatize the functionality which has to be tested automatically? This article describes several methods to estimate the required effort for test automation and the approach to collect the required data. By applying the described estimation methods via a case study key figures can be defined to estimate the required effort for test automation projects.
