Test & Integration Project Group Publishes First-of-its-Kind Open Test Automation Use Case.
In early Q2 2022, Anritsu, Dell Technologies, Keysight Technologies, Meta, and EANTC came together to collaborate under the Test & Integration Project Group to create a focus group intent on creating a first-of-its-kind Open Test Automation Use Case document.
Throughout 2022, the focus group diligently built this Use Case from the ground up. Now, in 2023, the work has been published to the public and is garnering interest from industry partners about potential implementation.
To date, test automation efforts in the industry have been conducted in isolation, classifiable in two aspects:
- Dependency and hard-coding to local environments (lab IPs, services), and
- Custom tooling/frameworks and processes are typically treated as intellectual properties. This approach leads to duplication in efforts, blocking the ability for developers and testers to share, collaborate, and reuse existing efforts (tests, scripts, frameworks) across labs and corporations.
The Use Case document promotes a shared, common approach toward test processes, framework selection, and best practices.
