In this video, Meaghan Lewis calculates a combined total of the test scenarios for the value, risk, and cost. Understand what to make of this total and come to a decision about what to automate.
- After identifying the value, risk and cost…of each scenario there is now enough information…to select the best candidates for automation.…Here are the final scores.…Now I'll sum the value, risk and cost scores…for each scenario to get the total.…And here is the sum of the final scores.…Now let's analyze these numbers…to determine the next steps.…Because this example was pretty limited in scope…all scores were a three or higher, which is good.…
This will definitely not be the case for all features…but for now let's work with the data we have…and make some conclusions about it.…In this instance I'll decide to create a scale as follows.…Scores 13-15 should be automated…and scores 12 and less should not be automated.…That means we'll end up automating the following scenarios,…view products, add item to cart, view cart,…view total and checkout order.…I have confidence these five scenarios…will be the most important to prioritize writing test for.…
Not saying that the others aren't important…but the idea should be to focus…
