How to Choose an Automation Testing Tool

Posted by Infocampus HR on October 20th, 2017

It is regularly observed that individuals for the most part don't do what's needed examination of the mechanization instrument before doing computerization. For the most part, computerization depends on apparatus and range of abilities accessible in the association or counsel of partners or boss, which some of the time prompt less mechanization scope or makes an issue in running the content over and over.

As every device have a few points of interest and drawbacks with regards to the robotizing application on various natural designs. In this manner examination before doing robotization testing is a decent approach for most extreme profitability.

Choosing the wrong devices for computerization will completely or somewhat not have the capacity to satisfy the mechanization necessity. Other than that, if wrongly chose, instrument's authorizing taken a toll is an aggregate waste on the off chance that it isn't open source and association should again contribute for getting apparatus, prompting overhead cost to the association. Changing to another mechanization apparatus may prompt aggregate wastage of exertion improved the situation a before instrument.

In this way, now obviously Analysis is essential for instrument choice. The examination is done on a few criteria, in light of which apparatus choice is finished.

Most Important Criteria for Automation Tool Selection:-

Application under Test:

The application under Test is what we by and large call AUT. AUT might be electronic or windows based application or portable application. It is essential to check if the mechanization instrument can catch the objects of the application under test and perform operations on them what should be finished by the end client, so as to check their usefulness.

Activities like clicking a connection, entering information in the content box, tapping on a catch, intuitive activity and so on are a portion of the activities that are hurry to check apparatus' similarity with the application under test. On the off chance that it is windows based application, the device ought to have the capacity to perceive windows controls and play out an operation on them.


The robotization apparatus is now and again utilized by individuals who are less specialized. These are for the most part businessmen who require running the robotized test and seeing the outcome. Along these lines, it turns out to be very essential that instrument is exceptionally easy to utilize and non-specialized or less specialized individuals can utilize it without much trouble.

Additionally, it is very vital to think about the expertise required to run the device on the grounds that occasionally robotization structure advancement is required which by and large requires programming ability to create it.

Accessible Documentation:

Every computerization instrument is discharged with documentation. Thus, it is very critical to check whether the instrument is reported legitimately on the grounds that there is where we are stuck amid computerizing the application under test and investigate documentation to discover the arrangement.

Client Support:

In the event that it is robotized business instrument, we need to check the nature of help we are getting from apparatus enable focus, on account of any mechanization to issue.

Permit Cost:

This is an imperative factor, as the occasionally venture has a constrained spending plan for computerization and association pick to go for open source instruments for robotization. Here and there an apparatus is prescribed by the customer, which makes it less demanding for the association to hold up under permit cost.

Comprehend the Process for choosing Right Automation Tool:-

  • Document the prerequisite obviously
  • Choose a rundown of instruments that appears to be better reasonable for application under test. It is prompted not to choose an excessive number of devices in the rundown.
  • Prepare score card against the instrument for application under test. You can give some number to each instrument in view of the application prerequisite, which will help in planning score card, which will help in choosing the device or couple of devices.
  • Try out the chose instrument. Trial forms of the device are accessible, which can be gone for to mechanize the prerequisites.
  • Present the mechanization introduction to the group, which can give the input which can be useful for the situation if two or three robotization apparatus are chosen and displayed.

In light of above criteria you give rating number against every prerequisite for all the chose apparatuses. The greater part of the rating numbers is totaled. One critical thing to take note of that rating number is given in light of weightage every necessity is having.

It is very vital to take note of that there might be other necessity parameters which can be considered for apparatus determination and can be incorporated into the rundown like Script creation time, Browser Support, Device Support, Script execution time, Learning time and so on in view of the association's prerequisite.
