Key elements of
Manual Testing

    Manual Testing is a testing phase performed by a system tester without using automation to check out the program or site by simulating user actions. Due to manual testing of functional, we obtain useful details speaking about product state and development quality.

Plus points:

1. Operational efficiency

Overall part of projects develops by short sprints, so features are being introduced in fast forward. Manual testing in such conditions enables giving feedback to the team as promptly as possible, whether informing about detected bugs or delighting with a notice that everything is okay and we can move forward. This testing method is the same convenient if amendments introduced near the release and implemented function should be edited. In contrast to autotest that requires a long time for creating, the manual testing contributes process acceleration without going deadline, despite the human factor.

2. Usability

The inherent part that provides a clear understanding of whether new application features are easy in use.

3. Intellectual approach

Differentiates by improvisation that allows creating insane uncontemplated combinations of user actions possible to be done accidentally. New cases come out from this chain. However, there is a “what if?” question that serves as an additional drive to create new cases. That’s the way the tester finds innovative interconnections with the application, even if the basic case didn’t assume their existence.

4. Cost

In some cases, advanced and expensive automation has obvious advantages, but there are also situations when manual testing does work first-rate and save your budget carefully.

Practical implementation of manual testing

Who else but a human has a clue of what is important in product created for a real user? Automation speeds up the process but it doesn’t compare with the flexibility of human imagination. Since the product aimed specifically to people, we pass through all possible scenarios as if we were users, making sure the features work correctly.
