For Plex Smart Manufacturing Platform implementation, you have several complex implementations that modify the system's default behavior to fit your processes. Therefore, as a part of rolling out and updating this implementation, you want to ensure that any previously made changes still function as expected.
Often you'd start with manual validation. Then, some assigned individuals would go through the existing functionality to ensure it works correctly.
Eventually, however, you'll realize that the validation volume is so high that it takes much time, hindering efforts to move forward efficiently. Also, humans are prone to making errors and sometimes missing important issues.
This is where you start to think about automation for your manual validation activity.
- You need to hire a QA Engineer to build automation (these are hard to come by and very costly).
- Once you start automating, you'll discover that as soon as Plex Smart Manufacturing Platform releases a new version, your test automation breaks because of subtle new changes in the release. This makes the majority of your tests fail, defeating the whole purpose of automation in the first place.
- Empower your existing employees who are now focused on manual testing to be able to build test automation regardless of their skill level.
- testRigor automation won't break between releases because it just doesn't rely on details of implementation like all other systems do.
