In automated tests, testers write the code that guides the test. Special tools can be used to design and manufacture experimental cases. The goal is to shorten the trial period.
A pre-written document containing experimental examples is initiated, in which actual and expected data are tested and compared.

Voluntary testing helps to reduce the time required for retesting. This is great for stress testing – when you need to make sure new changes don’t break an existing process. While automation saves a lot of time during a test drive, it takes a lot of effort to write test cases.
Main differences: Manual examination is individual and depends on the responsibility and experience of the examiner. Testing itself removes personal data when conducting tests.

Manual tests can take a long time, autotests do not.
You don’t need to know how to run manual testing programs. It is almost impossible to create autotests without coding.

Advantages and Disadvantages of a Manual Survey


  • A quick and correct answer if you need to plan for a particular situation.
  • In the early stages, it is much cheaper than a self-examination.
  • Human vision and intuition (helps detect invisible microbes)


  • Below is reliability because it is made by human hands. Nobody is perfect, so experimental errors are possible.
  • It cannot be reused.Some experimental cases can be difficult to quantify (lack of comparison of specific conditions, data entered, etc.)

Advantages and disadvantages of automated tests


  • It is fast and efficient.
  • It can be reused.
  • This makes a computer that is neither tiring nor lazy. It can be played multiple times and at any time (including night, weekends and holidays).


  • Impossible to visually evaluate usage without human limitations (colors, fonts, sizes, tents, etc.)
  • Test equipment can be expensive.
  • They need constant support – it’s a waste of human resources.
