No. It helps the manual tester in regression testing when time is a main factor. We can rerun the same tests again and again with multiple sets of data using data driven test.

Yes when software reliability is there .In other areas like mechanical science we purely depend on software for high-end application

No, manual testing cannot be replaced with the Automation. Automation can be done at an extent of maximum to 90-99% not 100 percent, since the tool itself will have certain limitations about the memory management, resources, platform on which the product need to be tested

NO,Automation cannot replace Manual,because we write the script to test the functionality positively,(We can write the scripts for negative testing also but it is hectic task).When we talk about real environment we do negative testing manually.

No, we cannot replace automation in place of manual. because if we believe application is stable then only we automate testing for regression.

There can be some functionality which cannot be tested in an automated tool so we may have to do it manually. therefore manual testing can never be repleaced.

No

First we do the manual testing

1.Integration testing

2.Module testing all we can do the manual

Then we go for regression and functional testing we are using automated testing

No, the person should know the basic of manual testing, otherwise it makes defect along the tester.

Yes , we can do, see some of the functionalities automation time will not consistently tested. that time we will go for manual from the automation testcases.

that's the reason all the banking domains 85% will do manual testing only.

Thanks

Hi! To say definitely No. Tools are enhancing and easing the testing process that;s it.First of all, tools are only performing testing and displaying the results as told by the test engineer(human). He is telling the tools values like expected. If u replace human by the tool who will ..............For ex. consider the testing of real time systems like chemical labs or rocket launching, if the temperature goes up above some speicifed limit, it should alert with in 5 seconds or 10 seconds. Like this we are using and there by easing.

No The Automation cannot replace the manual testing. Automation result is Mandatory . In some case IT some efficiency in the completeness and correctness of the data.To Execute the large number of files Automation is usefully. The results of the Automation should analyzed by Test engineers Manually.

No , both the testing have some similarities as well as some differences.........

Completely we may not replace manual testing by automation bcz Preparing test scenarios and test cases we may not automate and as well as inserting check points at the required places is not possible thru automation..

That's why manual work is must and should fro some works we cant automate every action thru tools in testing process.

Kind of a silly question actually! Automated test can replace manual testing, but why would you do that. Any organization would be doing fantastic if they could have 60-70% of there current manual tests automated.

There are so many variables that come into play when determining candidates for automated testing (ie number of times script is executed, type of test, how often will the automated script be executed after completed).

If your company has unlimited resources and money, then sure you could automate everything. Be realistic, you automate when your ROI is proven to be high.

No, Automation never replace Manual testing because each tool has some limitations. Whenever application is stable then only we will go for automation otherwise application should be collapse. A lot of manual effort is put on application then only application will be stable.

No, I dont thinks so, there is not single tool for all testing, and Why you want to remove All Manual Testing Activity.
Automation tool does not create test cases.

No automation cannot replace manual testing.
There are many such things/scenarios which cannot be automated i.e. it can only be done by manual testing.
A mixture of both automation and manual testing results in a proper testing activity.

Automation is not a replacement for manual testing.it is just the continuation of manual testing.because their are a lot of application where automation can not be done with out the help of manual testing.

Automation is basically done to fasten the testing process. Apart from being fast, it is accurate as well, adding further advantage of saving cost.
So manual testing and automation testing, both are part of the main testing phase. Adhoc testing is a major part of testing phase and this can never be covered by automation, as the same suggests :)

No it cannot ever replace.. Automation is not testing but its a development activity.
Automation complements manual. It makes your work faster but its not testing.

No, automation testing cannot replace manual testing because there are many situations where a computer cannot replace insight, understanding and experience of a tester. Regression testing is mostly automated as it is a time taking and repetitive process.

Automation testing is not a replacement for manual testing its just a continuation for manual testing. Because initially every application will be tested manually once the application has come to a stable state then only it is suggested to do automation testing.

Short Answer is No. Next thing you need to understand is difference between Manual Testing and Automation Testing.

Manual testing means testing a product/app/website or anything that needs to be tested using some X tools. While Automated testing is doing that same thing using (X-Y) + Z. Here all X, Y, Z are set of tools.
