Process

Manual testing is a method for manually verifying and validating software without the assistance of automation tools. Here is an overview of the manual testing process:

test planning

Test Planning

In this phase, the manual testing service provider defines the scope of testing, selects test scenarios and creates a test plan. They also define test objectives, timelines and deliverables at this point.

Test Case Development process

Test Case Development

During this stage, the testing team creates test cases based on requirements and design documentation. These contain input data, expected outcomes, as well as steps to execute the test.

Testing Execution Process

Testing Execution

In this step, the manual testing company executes all test cases and reports any defects or issues to the development team. Test results are documented, with cases marked either passed or failed.

Defect Reporting Process

Defect Reporting

During this phase, any defects or issues discovered during test execution are reported to the development team. They then work to rectify the defects and retest them to verify they have been addressed.

Test Closure Process

The cost of manual testing services varies based on several factors, such as the complexity of the software being tested, its size and scope of testing required, the expertise and experience of the testing team members, as well as where they are located.

Manual testing typically entails running test cases manually without the assistance of automation tools. Nevertheless, certain resources can be leveraged to facilitate manual efforts, such as:

  1. Test Management Tools: These applications aid the manual testing process by offering features like test case creation, execution and reporting. Popular examples of such test management applications include TestRail, Zephyr and HP ALM.
  2. Defect Tracking Tools: These applications help monitor and manage bugs identified during testing. Popular defect tracking solutions include JIRA, Bugzilla, and Mantis.
  3. Screen Capturing Tools: These applications enable the capture of screenshots or video recordings during testing, which can be useful for documenting results or demonstrating issues to developers. Popular screen capturing programs include Snagit, Fireshot, and OBS Studio.
  4. Collaboration Tools: These applications enable teams to work together more efficiently on testing projects by offering features like shared test cases, results, and communication channels. Popular collaboration software options include Slack, Microsoft Teams, and Asana.
  5. Browser Extensions: Browser extensions offer additional functionality to web browsers, such as developer tools, network monitoring services and testing utilities. Popular examples of such browser extensions include Chrome Developer Tools, Firefox Developer Tools and Selenium IDE.
  6. Accessibility Testing Tools: These applications assist in testing the accessibility of web applications for users with disabilities. Examples of accessibility testing tools include Wave, AChecker and Access Assistant.

In conclusion, manual testing relies mainly on manual execution of test cases; however, the use of supporting tools can enhance efficiency and effectiveness during this step. Which tools are chosen will depend on specific testing needs as well as personal preferences of the testing team.

Our manual QA testing services can highlight three main challenges:

Time Constraints: Manual testers often face the daunting challenge of testing multiple functionalities within tight timeframes, necessitating exceptional efficiency and focus to complete thorough tests despite limited testing time available.

Exploratory Testing: Executing exploratory testing requires striking equilibrium between creativity and analysis skills. Testers should have the capacity to think outside the box by devising new test scenarios while effectively analyzing system behavior.

Effective Bug Reporting: Accurate defect reporting is the key for development teams' efficiency. Our testers specialize in crafting thorough and well-structured bug reports that enable developers to quickly comprehend and address issues arising in real-time.

As a dedicated manual testing service provider, we understand these obstacles and take measures to overcome them with high-quality solutions that fit within demanding project deadlines.
