What Tests to Automate Firstly?

The first question that arises during the software product testing and which should be answered without bias is: “Is it advisable to use automated testing for this software?”.

In the answer to this question is affirmative than it is needed to determine the project requirements and to plan the steps for developing the automated tests.

Any kind of testing – functional testing[1], unit testing, usability testing[2] – requires a specific set of tests. Automation likewise requires such data. However, a detailed listing of tests designed for automated testing of each function is completely pointless. It should be repelled from listing what project parts that are common to some categories of programs should be subjected to automation primarily.

Which Modules and Parts Should be Subjected for Automation?

The proposed list is only an indicative, and a software testing company[3] can make its own, because everything depends on the system requirements for audited requirements, features which the selected for automated testing tool allows for realization, etc.
