High Volume Automation in Practice

High-Volume Automated Testing is “a family of test techniques that enable a tester to run and evaluate arbitrarily many computer-assisted tests” (WTST 2013). This definition is pretty broad and covers a lot of ground, depending on what kinds of tests are being considered for execution by the automation, but one thing that all these tests have in common is that this isn’t the same old, run-of-the-mill automated execution of a set of previously executed regression test cases. In this session, we’ll talk about what High Volume Test Automation is, what sorts of things you can accomplish with it, a number of different ways to look at integrating high volume techniques into a testing effort, and how to begin applying high-volume techniques in your organization.

Session Takeaways:

  • An understanding of the concept of high-volume automation testing.
  • A mental framework to classify and think about a number of high-volume approaches.
  • Examples of these high-volume approaches from real testing efforts.
  • A process for starting to bring high-volume automation into their organizations.
