The In-Process Automation approach helps to start the automation process early and get the benefits of automation throughout the testing life cycle. A transparent development life cycle and coordination between the testing and development teams helps this approach succeed. As the automation test execution is faster, defects can be detected early in the testing cycle, ensuring more defect fixing time for the development teams. The development and testing teams need to deploy a disciplined approach since the automation cycle runs parallel with the development life cycle. The manual testing team also gets an opportunity to conduct random/ ad hoc testing to discover niche defects.
In today’s industry where decreasing the time to market is the motto for any application, an approach like In-Process Automation should be implemented to facilitate the testing process and the team.
