quality management Questions

I need to automate the process where each time I need to register a user with a different email and verify them. Is there any such email service that allows testers to automate the process of getting a token / URL from a temporary mail address?

We have a very complex software product that is installed and runs on a Computer or Server.  The Software is managed by a Management Console in the Cloud. 

For years all of our End to End testing was manual.  But this was very resource intensive and time comsuming.  So a couple of years ago we moved to a more agule development approach and built a test automation system to run these End to End tests.  However, we quickly found limitations for example we couldn't have automated tests check what is being displayed in the UI running on the Computer, or check what is being displayed in the Management Console in the Cloud.  So we can never fully replicate in automation what the manual tests were doing.

The result is that we still run, some if not all, of the automated tests manually so check the parts that the automation can't.  So it hasn't really saved us any time or effort.  Also the reliability of the automated tests is an issue due to trhe complexity of the software and it having so many moving parts.  We often run into timing related issues.

Is it possible that some software does not make a suitable candidate for End to End test automation?  If so, what sort of approach should be taken in that situation?  I've been ready about test automation a lot and looked at a number of different tools and systems, but both the tools and the theory all seem to be based around website testing, rather than testing Desktop software.

Many thanks in advance for any thoughts and suggestions. 

I want to know the best approaches (Automated UAT, Regression testing, Retesting, etc.) to reduce production defects in software development.

I would like to find out strategies used by other QA as well as which methods would work best in this environment as I am used to working in a dev environment and not financial institution 

 
 

If the designs(XD adobe screens)from the clients are given in arabic how to overcome that problem if english is the only language that can be used to test from our side. Can i get the solution? Can i get any tool to change the entire texts(which is given in image) from arabic to english?

I'm currently building out a Test PMO for an insurance company. We have a long term, fixed-price contract with a vendor using a waterfall model.  I'm currently working on KPIs and metrics which I will use to tell the testing story, which means both technical and business comsumers will need to find value in them. I'm conducting targeted interviews atm  but am interested in hearing if any of you have had experience in this arena.  

What kinds KPIs / metrics have you found valuable?

What kinds of chatring / mapping have you found to be confusing?

What considerations would you want to address?

Any additional comments?

Suppose you work at a Company. 

And a new Client arrives, he needs the system he has, and he continues to build, to be tested. 

What is the approach you take, to find

-which tests to approach

-which tests to automate

-which tools to use

-how to build a solution for that client Testing and Automation testing needs?

I am on a team of two working on standardizing testing for the company. The culture here is very resistant to change, as I am sure many colleagues on here have experienced themselves. I want to continue pushing this elephant up the stairs, but I am afraid some of these templates (IEEE 829 standard templates) are too dense for most of them. My mentality right now is to take this in strides. I want to avoid creating a 12 part test plan that people need to follow if they are just going to get defensive and say they do not have the time to even test, or test this way. Of course we have plans to educate as much as we can, but this is going to take years. What are your suggestions, then, with creating templates? Right now I have identified three that need to be used across all teams (Test Strategy, Test Plan, and Test Summary). We have plans on creating a best practice document/resource for teams to educate them on the industry standards.

In the company where I work there are 3 products: software, application and site - each with a different QA process. The question is how would you suggest integrating the QA process in different scenarios? Because there are tasks in which the QA man checks the task and there are those who "created" the task and checked whether it was indeed done at his request.  

I look forward to your comments on this subject.  

Thanks!

Everyone is now looking for the automation testing. Because there is lot of problem happening in manual test case generation and execution. So, how can I increase users for manual testing? is any latest features there? if it means, please let me know..
