Improving quality, shortening lead times, and reducing costs by adopting best practices for test automation
SHIFT standardizes the automation technologies we have accumulated in past automation projects. We also have frameworks for various test types. Furthermore, the support provided by high-level automation engineers enables us to smoothly construct the test automation infrastructure required by the customer.
Even when a project is launched with the man power of some engineers, test automation requires expertise, effort, and time to achieve (mass production of test code). SHIFT conducts education regarding test automation so we can provide a steady supply of professionals with the required expertise. We build a system for the mass production of test code and provide customer support to achieve the automated testing requirements.
Automated tests do not provide value unless they enable detected problems to be properly handled and are maintained according to changes in system specifications. SHIFT provides support for the continuous operation of automated tests via everything from proposals for efficient operation flows to incident isolation and feedback to test specifications.
SHIFT designs highly precise tests using standard test viewpoints. We determine whether automation is suitable for the various test cases and separate items into those that should be performed automatically and those that should be performed manually. Performing both automated tests and manual tests enables comprehensive testing to be executed and allows more efficient detection of problems.
Adopting tools haphazardly often fails to obtain the desired effect. Instead of proposals based on tools, SHIFT can identify where to start automated testing and where manual testing should be performed, upon conducting a hearing of the current development environment, development process, and issues faced. This enables more efficient automated testing.
SHIFT has rich experience with testing and automation, which enables us to accurately understand the elements required for automated testing (automatic operations, automatic verification and automatic reporting, test executing management, and execution environment preparation). This enables us to achieve optimal test automation by determining the appropriate tool to use according to the level and type of the target test.
SHIFT systemizes our knowledge on tools and technologies to construct education systems based on our wide range of experience using automatic testing tools. By operating education according to the roles of the project and cultivating engineers, we are able to provide a steady supply of skilled automation engineers.
In addition to preventing human errors, the test automation provided by SHIFT enables the man-hours freed up by automation to be assigned to other tasks and testing. Expanding the scope of testing contributes to improved quality for the entire project.
