Solution : Customise the script by inserting
checkpoints required for validation. You may
also need to modularize the script, allowing
many testers work at it simultaneously.
Solution: Don’t limit validations to visible
elements. Consider keeping validations which
give the idea the entire process has finished.
PROBLEM 1 : USING PLAYBACK AND
RECORD TO CREATE TEST SCRIPTS
PROBLEM #2: CONSIDERING ONLY VISIBLE
PROBLEM #3: NOT USING VALIDATION
PROBLEM #4: REPLACING MANUAL
TESTING ENTIRELY WITH AUTOMATION
PROBLEM #5: USING IRRELEVANT TEST
Solution: Consider validating test script with
checkpoints. Place the checkpoints at numerous
places in the script.
Solution: The testers should understand that test
automation is not a replacement of manual
testing. It is rather an addition to it. They should
leave scope for manual testing in the project.
Solution: Consider creating smaller test cases
that are condensed into a single suite
representing the whole functional flow.
