Seems like many testing frameworks and testing services support all programming languages, but manual testing is still indispensable. It is generally accepted that any test automation won’t exist without well-planned and executed manual testing procedures. Sometimes it’s impossible to understand the performance of new implementations via automation testing. The engineer can improvise when using manual testing. This helps to create new complex scripts that the user won’t even try.
When to use manual testing?
Software testing is a well-planned complex of conscientious work. The earlier we start testing, the more time we will have to release and prevent a huge pile of bugs. For instance, our manual testing company can say five reasons why and when you need to use manual testing:
When the main scope of business or functional requirements is prepared, our QA-team can perform static testing. It is a technique, which can help us find mistakes, defects, discrepancies, and illogical statements in requirements before any code is written or executed.
When the functionality is done, only manual testing will be run first to ensure that all requirements are covered, the behavior of feature works as expected, and feature meets the customer’s expectations.
After receiving customer-caught errors, we can use manual testing in order to quickly reproduce what happened and create a bug report including missed details, which are important to fix.
When the manual functional testing is finished, our QA-team can start to prepare a regression test suit and improve existing test cases. Only if this phase of manual testing is done, we can start our test automation process.
When requirements are ready, our QA-team can start to prepare manual test scripts or test cases using the most effective test-design techniques such as specification-based or black-box techniques and plan every phase of testing.
Manual Software Testing Process :
It is important to follow particular steps to achieve the best results in manual testing. Here are the five fundamental manual testing processes that we follow during each testing project.
Step 1: Test planning and control
determines what is going to be tested.
Step 2 : Analysis and design
aimed at finding details for test conditions and combining them into test cases.
Step 3 : Implementation and execution
include running test cases, logging of the outcome, and retesting issues.
Step 4: Evaluation of exit criteria and reporting
aimed at checking whether the requirements have been met; creating a test report.
Step 5 : Test closure activity
aimed at concentrating on making sure that reports are written, problems are closed, and defects deferred for another phase are visible.
