Iterative Automation

This is an article from the November edition of the EuroSTAR Newsletter - STARTester, written by by Vijay Acharya, RelQ, UK. You can view the complete newsletter by clicking here and don't forget to subscribe to receive future issues.

In this article, I would like to share my experiences of test automation, when confronted with requirement of automating multiple products within a suite and to deliver automated scripts within short span of time.

A Peek into the Product

The product is an Industrial Engineering workflow management system, pre-dominantly used by plant design engineers. The product has series of interfaces to process information from disparate plant design systems, and sends the output in the form of 2d or 3d graphical images over an intranet portal.
The suite of four products are tightly integrated to manage the chain of activities starting from creating individual design elements to integrating and creating whole plant design diagrams.
