In his latest TechWell column, Hans Buwalda discusses multi-station testing with actions, in particular using the “lead-deputy model.” In this model, a lead machine is responsible for most of the UI interaction of a test, but will also assign commands to the one or more “deputy” machines. The “deputy” machines work like normal test machines and are able to interpret and execute actions. They can work in sync with the lead machine, or in parallel.
“A clever automation engineer alone is not enough to fix a situation where tests are not well designed.”
Hans Buwalda draws from his “Three Holy Grails” analogy when he focuses on the key goals when creating a test design.
LogiGear CTO Hans Buwalda summarizes ABT’s advantages for agile projects with focus on the relationship between product and automation development life cycles, and the importance of test modules in test design.
