Test automation has a lot of potential benefits. However, some of the technical challenges of designing and implementing a test automation solution could render the effort totally futile. The ease of test creation, the effectiveness of tests, and the cost of maintenance should be taken into consideration when designing a test automation framework.

Most organizations write too many lines of code to automate anything. The test automation scripts in most cases take a significant time to develop and are usually difficult to maintain. Automated test cases are not always easy to read and understand. Some automation solutions are change-intolerant. Developers write code that needs to be tested and QAs write more code to test the developer’s code. This coding-affinity approach to automation yields little dividends since the test framework developed is often not very stable.

The “no-code test automation” concept encourages the design of a test automation framework that requires little or no coding efforts using the Robot Framework. A loosely coupled design with various levels of abstraction is explored. Effective automated tests are created in no time. Tests are classified and grouped meaningfully. The results are easy to understand. Test cases are more expressive and easier to maintain. CI/CD integration is straightforward. The test framework is robust and adopts to changes quickly.
