Test Automation Case Study
Name Ali Belakehal
Abstract Over the last two years, the testing process of one of the software development teams at LHV bank went through several development stages. However, there hasn't been any methodical approach towards validating that evolution. The aim of this thesis is to conduct an investigation of three key periods, and measure the cost and effectiveness of the testing process during each period. A multilevel analysis is then performed in order to identify problematic, as well as improvement patterns, and the factors associated with them. The analysis is concluded with setting the goal of shifting the testing process to a more automated model. Subsequently, the remainder of the thesis undertakes the task of combining a multiplicity of techniques that try to make such model achievable, by automating certain aspects of the test automation process itself. These techniques are articulated as a proposed solution, which is then implemented and validated in the context of this thesis.
