Smart Testing: Manual or Automated?
Manual testing provides flexibility, emulates user experience, and allows quick adaptation to changing conditions. However, it can be time-consuming and prone to human error. On the other hand, automated testing can efficiently handle repetitive tasks, smoke-level tests, and regression tests, while reducing human error, but it requires initial setup time, tool maintenance, and can be costly. This article discusses the strengths and weaknesses of both, since choosing the most effective method depends on the project requirements, available resources, and the scenarios that need to be tested, often suggesting a combined use of the two techniques.
