Manual versus Automated Testing
- Manual testing is prone to human error, hence it is less reliable.
- Manual testing is very time-consuming.
- Cost defined by human resources.
- Manual testing is only practical when the test cases are run once or twice, and frequent repetition is not required.
- Manual testing allows for human observation, which is more useful if the goal is user-friendliness or improved customer experience.
- Automated testing is more reliable, as it is performed by software tools and/or scripts.
- Automated testing is executed by software tools, so it is significantly faster than a manual approach.
- Largest cost component are the testing tools.
- Automated testing is a better option when the test cases are run repeatedly over a long time period.
- Automated testing does not entail human observation and cannot guarantee user-friendliness or positive customer experience.
