Why Manual Testing Is Still Important
The demand for automation testing is increasing day by day to speed up the QA process which replaces manual testing. However, manual testing still has it's role in the QA process.
In this article let's take a look at some of the reasons why manual testing is still important.
1. Human Perspective
The application is created by humans, for the humans so human perspective is very important to use it in the real world. Human testers can pick up the visual issues which scripts can't pick up. Human perspective is very important to identify the bugs. By automated test scripts we can't spot contextual bugs and the usability of the application for the end user needs human interaction.
2. Exploratory Testing
This type of testing can be done manually, it helps the tester to see the bigger picture and helps in understanding the project just by exploring it. it helps the tester to find the answers like "what if i try this?".
3. Understand the real world problem
Manual testing helps to understand the problems in the software on a very basic and conceptual level in which human understanding and emotions are involved. an application is going to be used by different kinds of people and they are going to run and check different functionalities that could uncover UX issues, Design issues, critical bugs and so on.
4. Automated tests can contains errors
Automated test scripts can also have bugs, as the code can have bugs. Manual testing can help us to find the least obvious bugs.
5. 100% Automation is not possible
If someone says he wants to do 100% automated testing is like saying he wants 100% defect free software which is impossible.
In today's world, testing is very important before releasing it to the real world and it has a very important part to play in software development. it is required for an effective performance of software application or product.
