test execution Questions

So, I'm writing automation tests for a huge web platform. We have page objects folder with files for each web page which contain a great amount of selectors used in tests. Also, tests pertaining to one of the component/functionality are all grouped in one file. 


The main question is whether the functions used by multiple tests (and some will have assertions in them) should be written:

1. Functions w/o assertions in page object and those w/ assertions in helper file for that component/functionality

2. All functions in helper file

3. Functions w/o assertions in page object and write the rest of the commands with assertions in the specific tests even though they may repeat and make the file with tests huge.

Testing is done in javasctipt(more recent: typescript), selenium webdriver, protractor, jasmine.

I really hope someone can solve this conundrum since nobody in my office has enough experience to help me. Thank you!

p.s. Should we group tests in one file? or write wvery test in a separate one?  


What are the future options for one year experienced software tester?

Does anyone here have any experience or knowledge of performing acceptance testing on automated conveyor systems utilised for the sortation of items.

This is a mixture of software and interfaces with moving machinery and integrating into data systems 

For example conveyor or materials handling conveyors used in the managment and distribution of luggage around a large airport 

I am looking to understand how you defined the scope of test and the framework adopted with the possibility of benchmarking the activities you have performed.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I was just assigned recently to a new role to lead and develop a Quality Engineering Team, our first task is to conduct software testing for a reporting application that our organization is currently developing.  We already have some test plans, test cases and test steps developed (in excel format), but I was hoping if we can automate the QA testing as well as UAT using the an automated testing.  Will you be able to recommend what available software or applications we can use to do this?  

I saw selenium as one option, but we are still trying to explore it, but we may need a tool that is much easier and user firendly.

Thanks in advance for your answers.
