You are implementing a TAS for a system that has been live for over three years, using a hybrid waterfall and agile lifecycle. Live updates are made on a monthly basis.
There is no test team, with developers designing and executing unit and integration tests with some degree of automation and business analysts designing and executing manual tests at the system level. No formal test process exists, although the system has proved relatively stable for most of the time.
Unfortunately, the last two monthly releases were problematic with regression defects found in production. Your priority is the automation of functional regression tests at the system level, the budget for this has been approved by project stakeholders.
The Business Analysts have identified which test cases are most suitable for regression. You must use the organisation's long standing commercial automation tool which has passed a proof of concept in the platform for the system in question.
Which of the following suitability criteria needs the MOST attention for the TAS?
When if the BEST time for automation to consider legal and/or standard requirements for a SUT?
Your company is new to test automation and as TAE. you have designed a TAS which successfully supports the SUT for the current project.
There are other systems currently in operation which have been tested manually and more systems are planned over the coming years. Based on this success, your company requires test automation be rolled out to other current and future SUTs with consistency being a key objective.
Which of the following is the BEST way to achieve that?
You have inherited a TAS that is working well it uses keyword-driven scripting and was well architected. The automation architect who built the system has now moved on to another company. The TAS is working across several projects and has a multiple library of keywords, categorised by project. The individual project teams maintain these keyword scripts.
Based only on the given information, what is the MOST significant risk for the TAS?
Which of the following CORRECTLY describes how automation SHOULD be applied to confirmation testing?
